I have a 14 year old daughter that has been acting very disrespectful towards me and refusing to do any chores or help around the house. Today she got home from school and when asked to do chores, refused. After an argument she ran out of the house. I called the police and they were able to locate her and bring her back home.

When she arrived, I tried talking to her and she attacked me physically. This is the first time that she ever does this. She called me a bitch and said she hopes I die. Although this hurt me very much, I understand that she probably does not mean what she is saying but nevertheless, it is concerning, She shares a room with my 8 year old and is acting very hostile towards everyone in our home, Including my 4 year old son.

I thought of calling the police after she attacked me. My 16 year old had to get in the middle and calm her down. I do not know how to handle this and any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I had an asthma attack after this incident and am also on cancer and high blood pressure medication. I feel totally overwhelmed and on the verge of tears at this point in time. Please help!

This is typical of young teens in that they want to become their own person in their own way. Calling the police will probably have put permanent damage into your relatonship. It is not right that she is hitting you, however, she is your daughter and it is your job to help her instead of victimizing yourself.

You need to get her to see a counselor. If she is assaulting you or any of the other people in the house, then you should call the cops. I would try to get the eight year old out of her room. These things are not uncommon for teenagers to do, but your daughter is going too far if she is hitting you.

I understand that and I am working on that. I know that I am not the victim and my daughter's well being is my priority. I have secured a parenting class to help me deal with my issues and help my daughter. Thank you for your comments.

Thank you. I did end up calling the police and an officer came to our home. She referred my daughter to Anger Management and another program at the Juvenile Justice Center. I am looking for another counseling program for her to attend and will find one for myself as well. I will take this one day at a time and try to grow and learn as a parent. Thank you for responding.
