Alexis, you can private message others, it is not safe to post your email on an open, international forum.

Parenting teens is the hardest job ever. Consistency in consequences is a must for sure. My husband and I were once given the advice of writing down the rules of the house (say only 5 non-negotiable items, you don't want it to be a lot) and their consequences, no arguing or questions asked. You break one of these five things, your punishment is written down and you own it. We also let them give input as to what they thought a fair punishment was (not that you have to do what they say, just input). Say for example, one of ours was disrespect of any form. The punishment (which they agreed to) was losing their phone for X amount of days, no questions asked. We put that list of rules along with consequences on the refrigerator and it helped tremendously. Once you have your list, go over it with the teen and say there will be no yelling or arguing. You break it, you own it. Maybe it will help you also. Hang in there, it does get better!

Do you make her meals, do her laundry, give her any money, or drive her anywhere other than school? Does she have a phone or access to electronics?

ALL of those things and more are privileges (food isn't a privilege, but at 14 having a parent MAKE the food IS a privilege) that she doesn't need to have unless she is willing to respect and follow the rules.

So what do you do when she does things? What are her consequences? Are you consistent in it? Do you enforce it? How long has it been going on?
