  • I don't, if she want's to be rude she can stay in her room until she want's to act human.

  • You don't deal with them....plain and simple. Don't do anything for them.....sometimes kids get so used to doing things, having things, and getting things that aren't really a dyer need and they get a sense of entitlement. Let them see life could be worse, don't do anything extra for them until they figure it out!

  • my oldest is ten going on 16.. she is soo rude sometimes. I have her write a page long essay on why she is being rude, why is wrong, and how she can her problems without being rude.
    If that don't work she gets grounded from phone,friends, outside, tv, computer everything.
    I also have her do chores that are not her normal chores. Once she is behaved she gets praised for turning her behavior around. When she handles her issues without being rude I let her know I am proud of her.

  • I do not argue and I will not feed into their rudeness...they will ignored until they can talk to me in a correct manner. If they are rude to someone else, they will be grounded.

  • When my boys are rude, I call them on it. If they realize it and apologize, then we move on. If they protest or deny saying it, I ask them to stop and listen as I repeat what they just said to me.

    More often than not, hearing their own words in the same tone back makes them realize they were wrong.

    Sometimes, they're rude because I was rude first. When they catch me at it, I apologize. There have been moments when I walk in the door, get instantly bombarded and snap before I think about it.

  • I just let her know that she is being rude and that she needs to change her attitude or go sit in time out until she can be nicer to me or whom ever.

  • Either completely ignore them or send them to their room. I just act like my sons don't exist when they are rude. This drives them crazy...then they apologize.
