My daughter back talks like crazy and refuses to do anything I say. What are some ideas to make her stop?

I have found with my teens, good relationships takes more time invested to develop. My experience with my daughter at that age was when she refused to do anything and argued with me, it was more about her trying out her independence and her own ideas and choices. Your girl is an emerging adult and wants respect and understanding but does not know how to communicate well that she wants to exercise some of her maturation. You can model good communication with the consequences spelled out for each time she disrespects you through arguing or talking or refuses to do what she is asked. I definitely go to the experts to get great counsel on parenting skills and there are many that want to help us !!! Check out - http://bit.ly/1LhmN5x and http://bit.ly/1UmcFda ----hope these help !!! Is her dad available? Get another adult involved that she has a relationship with too to support you.
