How can I discipline my daughter without having to raise my voice... It has been difficult, and she seems to keep repeating the things I am asking her not to do.

I hear you- i have the same thng. I find being ver yconsistent with what is permitted and what is not is a big help- them they know their boundaries , and they still really need them. Also, we have very firm consequences for disobedience and attitude, including loss ofpriveleges, like facebook... So far, so good! Good luck!

I have a 9 year old daughter who has pushed the limits since she was very small! . I have found that consequences, spelled out beforehand so there is no question what I expect from her, work wonders. some examples are taking away media time, outings, phone time, sending to bed early, writing a letter of apology, copying the commandment she has broken, etc. I try to let the consequence fit the crime, and I always have her apologize and ask for forgiveness from myself or the person affected. When she says she is sorry, I assure her of not only my forgiveness, but Gods forgiveness, too! It takes a lot of time and a lot of patience, but so far it seems to be making a difference. I hope this helps~!
