I have a 11 year old daughter that seems as if she doesn't care about anything or anybody. She completely ignores me and refuses to do as I ask. The only chore she has is to do good in school and keep her room clean. She has passing grades but her room, well, thats a different story. She will spend days up there just sitting around instead of cleaning. I'm lost as far as what to do about it. She lies to my face about some of the simplest things. I've tried grounding and took everything away but she does't seem to mind. Can anyone help me understand what is going on with her? She doesn't talk to me about anything. Its like she gets embarrassed and just says "I don't know". What can I do? She has became so mean and hateful towards her brothers and they love her to pieces. She started her period about 4 months ago. I had the talk with her and showed her everything but she will not tell me when she starts. Instead she bleeds all over herself and hides her pants and panties. I've tried to explain that I can't help her if she doesn't tell me. She knows there are pads in both bathrooms in case she needs them. I've even told her she doesn't have to tell me as long as she uses the pads and brings me the dirty clothes so I can get them clean before it stains. And yet, she still refuses to do so. I'm at my end, what can I do?
