My husband and I are relatively new TFC parents and we currently have a 16 year old girl. We are doing a pre-placement visit with another 16 year old who will most likely be placed with us this week sometime. Our first one has been putting us through the ringer recently. We are definitely out of the honeymoon stage. We have tried taking privileges away, and giving her assignments, but so far nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any different suggestions on punishments we can give her. She is very creative, but when we ask her to come up with consequences and punishments, she refuses to give us ideas.
