My middle child is very difficult to deal with. She is rude, back talks everything I say or ask her to do and responds in a matter that she is better than everyone else. I've tried everything from grounding to getting physical with her and nothing helps. She is rude in front of my coworkers, other family, and friends...it doesn't matter. I need help and advise......It seems already out of control. But on the flip side, if I am not around and she is with someone....she is the biggest sweetheart. Makes me want to vomit!! Help!!

Well, dealing with this type of behavior in teens is certainly challenging-and not uncommon! Unfortunately, sometimes this sort of acting out comes with the territory. But that doesn't mean you should just accept it. So, if you're interested, I thought there were some good tips in this article at http://bit.ly/1A0e9OI for handling situations like you mentioned. Maybe it will give you some strategies for things you haven't tried yet? Just a thought. Hope it helps!

Stop fighting w/ her? Talk to her about why she acts this way?

How old is she?
