I need help with my daughter. I am a single mom and have indulged her with too much and I have created a monster. Who can help me teach my daughter to respect me and others????

My son had the same problem, a false sense of entitlement if you will. He didn't appreciate anything that was done for him or given to him...it was never enough. He didn't grasp the concept that there were some people who didn't have anything. We're still working on getting him to the level that I want him to be but for now we've done the following and seen great improvement :
1) He is 5 and has household chores. He must empty his lunch box every day and take it to the kitchen, he must pick up his room each day and clean in well on Saturdays. He must clean the two bathroom vanity's with disinfectant wipes once a week. He must bring his dirty clothes down to the laundry room. He must get good 'conduct' grades at school the entire week. We have a weekly checklist and for each thing he completes he earns a quarter. For each thing he doesn't complete he loses a quarter. He's saving his 'allowance' for something special and bad behavior results in a fine. :)
2) Volunteer--Salvation Army is a great place to start. We sort donations...he gets all of his clothes from the mall...he now understands that some kids don't even have shoes in good condition to wear...

we're getting there.

what kind of attidtue does she have? Is it talking back or not using manners...I'm not a single mom but I do only have one child and he does get spoiled but we also make sure he is respectful...it all just depends on what kind of attitude she has
