Is there any other mums going through the same thing, I have taken away the use of the computer and other things she likes. But that just makes things worse what am I suppose to do.I am a single mum of two and living with my parents at the moment, my mum is helping me with her and can't understand why she is calling all of us idiots and telling us to shut up all the time.

Only took away phones and the things she likes? Does she realise that the only things you actually are required to provide for her are functional clothing, maybe a mattress, pillow and blanket, food (and none of those luxuries), water and shelter. Beyond that, everything else is considered a privilege and I'm sorry, but she'd be losing all those privileges bit by bit if she were my daughter. I'd consider stripping her back to the bare basics and she can earn it back. Stop washing her clothes, stop running her around to anything other than school, stop allowing her to have friends over OR going to the homes of her friends, just to name a few things. This level of disrespect does NOT belong in your home.

I would tell her that you are her mother and that she must respect you and stop talking like that. It's not lady like and it is down right rude. I would tell her once and if she uses such language again I would be punishing her hard. Take phone away till she learns to speak with respect,no more tv,no more anything she likes to do. You are her mom and no child should ever disrespect their parents or anybody else like that. I would have never dared to talk to my parents like that. Even if I learned those words from friends etc. I would have been in trouble..and I mean big big trouble.

I'm sorry that's happening first off. As a single mom of four, youngest now being 18 years old. after I went through a horrible divorce I adopted 5 more children. Raised 9 My suggestion is to get her into counseling. Possibly family counciling. How is she doing in school? do her friends talk to their moms like that,? hanging around with other people that are the same-tend to copy and think its funny. there are so many reasons why this could be happening. Pre-ten, drugs, being bullyed at school, have you noticed a change in appetite? has she had a physical or have you spoken to her doctor? but just know, there's no excuse for blatant disrespect.. ever. that's verbal abuse. sounds like she may need to be scared straight if she doesn't show remorse and stop talking to you like that
