Do you ever take a sports practice away from your kid for misbehaving? We have always felt that if we do that it takes it out on the other players (hurts the team) but our kid knows that. She knows we won't do that and when we have threatened to she brings what we have said up. Dr. Phil says know their currency, meaning take away what matters to them. What do you think?Answer Question

That is exactly what I do. I know what matters most to my daughter and I use that. These days you have to use everything you can teachers, church groups, friends, family to keep kids on track. Call the coach and explain what is going on and that you intend to pull her out of the team is A or B doesn't happen. Maybe if the Coach is also on your side pressuring her to straighten up - well it can only help. Good luck.
