My daugher is a great A and B student. She is an awesome daughter exept for all this attitude that seems to be coming from her all day long. Many times it's even when I am trying to help her decide something that will benefit her or question her about. Is anyone having this issue with their child and what methods of punishments are you using?

I would sound her out on it. Ask her why she would say such things or why the attitude. If you dont check her on it she will carry on. Have it out with her and tell her that it is disrespectful, she can do it at school but at home it stops at the front door. Tell her that her comment was hurtful or aggressive wouldn't it be better to say......... instead. Teach her how to rephrase things so she does not upset people. She is about to hit puberty so she will be hitting the hormone stage soon. Let some things go, just put it down to hormones, but challenge her when it gets to much.
