I have 3 very different girls...8 year old with ADHD, 13 year old who is irresponsible, lazy & sneaky and my 15 year old. First we struggled with our youngest ADHD for 3+ years, but we are in good place with her right now. The past year we have been working with my 13 year old to get her ready for 8th grade & ultimately HS. We have definitely seen effort & progress.
My 15 year old has always been a responsible, self sufficient, honor student, but her bad attitude, I just cant take anymore. Like we have all heard our parents say, "We do so much for her & ask very little in return." We feel she takes everything for granted & is unappreciative by the way she treats us & her sisters. She acts like she doesn't care about anybody/thing but herself. We have tried taking away the phone, computer & it doesn't seem to help. I don't understand how I could have brought up such an uncaring individual. How can you make someone care & be nice who clearly doesn't want to? HELP!!
