I have a 13 yr daughter who back chats all the time. She has a right attitude that i thought would come,once she became a teenage. I have always tried to get her to talk about how she feels and any problems she has so she doesnt feel frustrated and was hoping that being open with her would have given her the respect for me and her dad and would of hopefully prevented this from happening!! I have to ask her to do everything, everyday and it grinds me down. If i dont remind her to wash, clean her teeth, take things to school she needs, she just wouldnt bother!!
Asking her to do anything around the house always ends up in an argument and shouting match with the usual, You hate me!! You are always getting on to me, answers. Im fed up with it. Another problem is with her dad. He just makes a right mess of discipline!! She calls him names which i hate and have told him 1000 times not to put up with it, and to give her a punishment if she does it again. The trouble is the punishment is never held and she knows this and she gets round him everytime. I am at the stage where i dont say anything anymore because he just doesnt listen.
I want to nip this in the bud now before she gets to the age where she is to old to change her ways....help
