My daughter is 11, shes already menstruating...has been for several months...well now shes getting major attitude...my husband is too harsh on her...but he says im too soft and give in...to give an example...she got mad at something i asked her to do, and swiped her hand at my vase and it flew across the room (plastic vase and flowers) i grounded her from a field trip shes going on for summer camp tomorrow...but today i gave her a chance to earn it back by doing extra around the house....i just KNOW when my husband gets home from work he is going to be furious with me...is he right? am i too easy? or should he back off...cause i know he would never give her a chance.

I know how you feel b/c my BF & i have had the same situation many times and I've gone against him and it only backfired on me in the sense that when I DID start sticking to it, it was MUCH HARDER b/c they were so used to me being the "EASY PARENT". I would stick to your punishment b/c the longer you keep giving in, the longer it will take her to learn that with every action, there is either a reward or consequence that comes with it. GL HTH
