You need to train your daughter to listen to without raising your voice. Give her a warning so she knows that you are serious. The consequences should be pretty severe if she doesn't listen to you the first time. If she needs to clean her room, I would say it in a normal tone of voice: "You have to clean your room and it isn't done by dinnertime, I will take your MP3 player away for a week."



I found that I had to keep raising my voice to make my daughter listen and I got tired of it. Keep putting the pressure on and don't go back on your consequences. Eventually, you will train her to listen to without yelling.

You need to find out what she is so angry about. but until then, if she is doing something that you don't agree with, speaking to her in a stern tone of voice while looking her right in the eyes is a  great way to start. Let her know why she is in troule and then depending on how old she is give her a time out. when time is up again tell her why she was being punished then tell her you love her and give hugs and kisses

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT CHILDREN TEND TO TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY WHEN THE TONE IS STRONG. THAT TONE SENDS THE MESSAGE THAT YOU ARE NOT PLAYING. YOU DON'T WANT YOUR CHILD TO GET THE IDEA THAT SHE CAN DO OR SAY ANYTHING SHE WANTS. BEING A PARENT IS NOT EASY BUT CAN BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING. YOU JUS HAVE TO BE STERN WHEN YOU NEED TO BE. YOU ARE A PARENT FIRST AND A FRIEND LAST..
