Our 15 yr old pierced her eyebrow last week and she has not been listening, not completing homework assignments and just being obstinant. I have turned off texting and her internet on her phone. What else do I do? Nothing impacts her. She acts entitled and treats us like crap.

She ordered them on line and did it herself. Took texting and internet away today. Working on removing bedroom door as next take away. Keeps getting slammed. Thanks.

Keep on taking away privileges. Where did she get the piercing? If it was a shop, call the police because she is too young to consent.
Strip down privileges one by one. Once she is down to one change of clothing and a pillow on her bedroom floor, I guarantee you will have her attention. I mean everything. NO money, friend, lights, furniture, phone, computer (if she needs it for school TOO BAD!) clothing, bedroom door, makeup, friend visits..... You are in charge, the sooner she learns that the better.
