I am at breaking point with my 7 year old daughter, who just won't give me any respect! I have never smacked her, i don't deserve the way she talks to me, like i am something she just stepped in! And i am now at the point where i don't want to take her anywhere because i am embarrassed by the way she acts like everyone is worthless around her! This isn't the way i have bought her up, and it's literally happened overnight. She lies to me, and tells tales to her friends about me and her family, and i am so worried she is going to end up with no friends and pushing me away. I just don't know what to try next, i have tried time out, i have tried sending her to her room to calm down and think about what she has said, i have tried taking things away from her, grounding her, talking to her, teachers talking to her. I don't know what to do!!!!!!! Please help!!!!!
