Swearing is something my husband and I don't tolerate. My child is 15year old and if she swears at me she can kiss her teeth goodby. I usually take the time and try to talk things over when she is in a funky mood. She can say, I just don't feel like talking about it right now, but no cursing! we have rules and there are day she just ignores us. Meaning she has selective memory. Just keep trying.

Hi sandra, i know how u feel, i have a 14 and 16 yrs old girls. what i did is me and my hubby sit down and talk to them and tell them its not right to do this or that. But admitt it that we ourselves have gone through all that. so i just hope if u can bring all of them to sit down to talk it will help u. it works for me and my hubby.

Its one thing to say, "we're the parent and we're in charge." Its another thing to do it in a way that's effective and positive. They are your children. As much as you may want them out of your face, its your responsibility to be the parent and try to help them down a more constructive path.
Please check out some of the answers to the threads - "Attitude" and "How to stop your teen from yelling at you." Some of the issues are the same. The refusal to attend school shows this is a much bigger problem than just a little attitude, though. These children don't respect you at all. I hate to say it, but - please look at yourself. Do it in all honesty. And try to figure out what you are doing that is not worthy of respect. Sometimes we need to clean up our own acts before we can be of any help to our family.
Lastly, given the truancy, maybe there are professionals who can help the entire family dynamic? Clergy? Social Worker/psychologist? School adviser or dean? Health care professional? Even a trusted friend or relative. Anyone or anything that will help you change the pattern and start on a new road.
