My sd is 12 and the biggest challenge I have ever encountered a child to be. She got mad at me Saturday because I told her to wait till her dad got home before leaving for the mall with her friends. This started a argument with her and she broke the mirror in the living room and kicked a hole in her door and called me a name that I cannot repeat here. I relayed this info to dh when he came home and he went to talk with her, well she started it up with him too, which is unusual because it normally is just with me.
She had some choice swear words for him too and was having an all out tantrum and threw a bunch of her things across the wall. At this point dh smacked her twice, not really hard , to get her attention. This is something he never did before, he says he feels so bad about it and because of this he gave her no further punishment at all, which means she got away with it. Has anyone dealt with something similar before?
