I have this angry 14 year old daughter who thinks she knows best for her self. She thinks the whole world is safe out there that no one can't touch her or do any thing to her. She thinks I don't punish her right or I'm doing it all wrong or I just don't try. She resends me as her mother, she wishes she was never born or just wishes I wasn't her mother so can be free from me. I don't what else to do but to just hang in there and keep talking some since in to her, Im really running out of options here, any suggestions?

Hello Marilyn
It sounds as if you are quite stressed with the situation and that there is a lot of tension between you and your daughter. Instead of looking for ways to discipline her maybe you might like to look for ways to improve your relationship. At the moment you might be frustrated and upset by how things are. It seems as if you are both judging each other as bad or wrong.
Try to change your perception of her, she is doing her best at the moment and she is still a child. It is easy to forget when they seem so old. Try making a list of some things you like about your daughter and ask her questions to find out more about who she is and what she enjoys.
Take some time out with her to get out of the routine and enjoy something. I really hope i have been helpful to you. i think you may find it helpful to visit www.believeability.org.uk
