My daughter just does not care. She won't do what she knows is her responsibility around the house without me pushing or reminding her. When she finally does she quits at 99%. She never goes any further. When she just won't do something, and we give a consequence, she really dont care. She never yells or anything. She don't drink or use drugs or have sex. She works her butt off for her dad who is out of state. Also does well for her work she recently quit. How do I get her to care again.

I hope there is no serious problem going on with your daughter but I feel for you, this must be so stressful and painful. I have had so many problems with my daughter who is now 20, she just had no respect for me and eventually through some very hard lessons she had to learn on her own, she feels differently about the things I did try to tell her to save her some grief. Now my 15 year old son is failing 9th grade and admits he is just lazy and has no motivation. He gives me some attitude when asked to things around the house but only wants to be rewarded by being allowed to hang out with his friends. This generation just has no vision of a future or the need to be productive. I am at my wit's end with my son as well. I wish I could say I have a suggestion, I have also tried to get my son to give me examples of things that he wants to do with his life and though he says he wants to be a good person and have a good life he exhibits no desire to do anything to make that happen. I am trying to get help with this problem and if I learn anything that might help him I will make sure to come back to share. I hope for the best for you!
