She lacks respect and doesn't want to do school or homework. She lies about everything and is very manipulative and sneaky. We don't know what to do anymore. Please give suggestions tyia

i was just like that at her age... not anymore- i grew out of it... maybe she will smarten up too... i can tell you though nothing my mom did as punishment helped her it just made me more pissed off and rebel harder -- or get alot sneakier so now i tell her stories about stuff and she cant believe it -- honestly best thing to do is try and make her feel like youre not judging her but youre on her side and you know what she feels like -my mom DID NOT do that for me but im giving you the perspective of someone who just went through that phase 4 1/2 years ago and i remember it well except i moved half way across the country to live with a boy i met and came back pregnant because my mom didnt make me feel like i was being heard -- Im not saying im an expert at all but wanted to give you a "recent teens" outlook on it :)
