Hi I have a 12 yr old daughter who is very jealous of her brother and her step brothers. She is also disrespectful, talks back, argues, bullies her brother around. My son has adhd and odd combined. I tried taking everything from her and it does not work for her. I'm in need of some advice please and thank you. Connie Morris

I had a child on the Autism Spectrum as well as he is ADD/ADHD, ODD, Anxiety Disorder, and Sleep Disorder. My 11 year old at times is disrespectful but my child with special needs is very blunt and almost monotone. He also disrespects back as well. My child is currently on meds. I feel the best way is open ended communication without yelling. Try a family meeting or family counseling. Also let both child express themselves without yelling.

Jodi she has that I don't care attitude. She is in field and track we thought maybe getting her in to school activities would help but it's like she's an out of control 12 yr old. I wish we had a scared straight program around here. It seems like that's my last option. There is a court order that my kids go to the grandparents every other weekend and split holidays. My aunt in North Carolina gets 1 month out if every summer. I'm just soooooo frustrated and don't know which way to turn.

Is there anything at ALL that is important to her? Friends, extra curricular activities, music, anything? Is it that she is just pretending not to care about the things you take so that you give up and give them back?

I think you also need to ask, why is she jealous?
