My daughter is 11 and in middle school. Her thing to do now is not answer me or just shake her head slightly to answer a "yes" or "no" question. I simply say I deserve and answer, but she still does it when she is in trouble. So I decided to ignore her for 20 minutes this morning. She apologized but I disregarded her and continued doing what I was doing. She didn't like that. I took her phone away for the weekend and she is in her room after school. She did the same thing to her father when he drove her to the bus stop. She talks very very low when she actually does answer us.
