My SD, 9, has a a problem with sneaking food/pop in her room and when you ask her about it after she gets caught she lies and has a HUGE attitude about it. She will also yell at you when you are talking calm. I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions?

This def. has to do with her being abandoned. My dd's bio mom left her and let her fend for herself. She was only 2. She had a major problem with food hording. her therapist said it was because she was afraid that she would never have any food again. We let her know at age 4 that there will always be food around. ad not to be afraid to ask us if she can have something, even if it a cookie. We compromised We made a deal if she was good all day that she could have a cookie right before she brushed her teeth at night. Good luck. I know your sd older than my dd but a little compromise goes a long way.
