I have a 15-year-old daughter who is so disrespectful toward my husband and me. I don’t know what to do anymore? Try to ignore her but then she gets in my face... what else can i do ?

Stop doing anything for her. I am sure she relies on you to eat meals, make sure there is food in the house, purchase her clothes, take her places, do her laundry. Stop. I would sit down and discuss it with her first, and tell her that respect is a 2 way street, and that if she can't be respectful to yourself and her father that she will need to get by without all those things that you go out of your way to do for her, because her disrespectful attitude doesn't impel you to do them for her.

I did this one with my son when he started giving me attitude....it worked. All he needs now is a "who do you think is cooking your dinner tonight?" and he is straight back into line and apologising for his attitude. I recognise that sometimes this happens because their hormones are all over the place at this age and they lack the maturity and skills to control themselves all the time. Sometimes it will happen, but they need to recognise that it really isn't acceptable.
