My 13 year old daughters behavior is becoming intolerable. We have taken away everything there is to take and nothing seems to work. I realize she is having hormonal changes but I will not deal with disrespect. I am worried about so much negativity, but how do you give positive feedback toward negative behavior?

Where is her father?
What is her relationship like with him?
He should step in and say how it offends him that she is disrespecting his wife.

I'm going to add something in a personal message.

Hello LeAnne. I'm sure a lot of us have been in your shoes at least once. All you can do is continue to love your child. Punish them for bad behavior and hug them for good behavior. You're right about the hormones probably playing a role in this, so keep in mind that eventually, those should settle down a little. A lot of teens just don't get along with their parents but that's to be expected. Doesn't mean they don't love them. Try to talk to her and see where this disrespect is coming from.

Good luck!
