My daughter gets very angry whenever her dad or I try an ask her a question, or tell her to do something. I don't know if it's the nagging she doesn't appreciate? She says 'whatever'. Or if we try to discipline her by taking something away, she says 'oh well, i don't care'. I don't know how to fix this attitude. Any help is much appreciated. (She's almost 12.)Answer Question

This attitude is very typical of a teen or a pre teen, as long as she is not being disrespectful, ignore it.....

It is called puberty/teen years. Sound like she is starting early. He saying it does not bother her for you to take things away is just reverse physiology. She want you to think it does not bother her. So you will give it back. One thing I know she will not like is to take her bedroom door off. No privacy will hurt her the most.
