I have a9 year old daughter a six year old daughter and a 5-year-old son. my 9 year old daughter is very disrespectful and talk back, she feels I don't understand her and blames us for everything. She always saying we don't care for her like we do the other 2 kids. But we try to make time for everyone.

There could be possible developmental delays- ones you wouldn't normally see. Heck out sensory processing disorder. I thought my youngest was a brat and being disrespectful but it turns out that's what he has. There are tons of studies you can look into. And if there are no developmental delays, then it's about yours and your husbands authority. They need to know your the boss, you make the rules, and you need to be firm in your punishments- but also be firm in your rewards. If you ask them to clear their plate from the table and they say no and try to walk off block their path and tell them it's happening now or they don't get (blank) later. They dont respect your
authority. And when they have positive behavior, make sure you make a big deal about it. POSITIVE reinforcement is a big help in turning your "bad" child around.
