Hi all, i am hoping that someone has some ideas that i haven't tried yet. My daughter is constantly rude, answers back, is disobedient, thinks that we (parents, teachers) are being mean to her and latest thing is that she says that when i die i can do whatever she likes. We have tried reward charts, we try to be encouraging and positive. We have tried in terms of punishments taking away computer and tv, removing the thing she is playing with, setting her in a corner, doing extra chores, shouting and unfortunately swearing and calling her names and now we are just so frustrated because mothing seems to be getting through that established rules that she should know good and proper by now if she breaks them she gets a smack. We have read heaps of books and seemingly tried everything.......nothing seems to be working.....please help i am going crazy.
