I am a mother with a severe lower back injury sustained in 07 and I have a 13 year old daughter who when she can't get her way or she is told to do something from me she fly's off the handle and physically attack's me. No, I don't raise a hand back to her. When she comes after me to hit me, she hit's me in my head, pull's my hair, punches me, scratches me, and will purposely kick in my lower back where she knows where my injury is. I am at a total loss of what to do about it. Recently last Monday she flew off the handle with me right before heading out to the Bus in the morning because I said something about her hair and wanted to fix it real quick and layed into me but good. Threatening doesn't work, they know you can't touch them even if it's just a swat on the butt cause they know they can go to school and tell and the parent's are the ones that pay a price. So, what is "the answer"??
