Okay I am having alot of problems with my daughter. Let me give you some background. I have been homeless twice. Both times Angel has lived with an Aunt who really does have set rules. We just moved into a house after 17 months in a Homeless shelter. Angel stay with me there for about a year. Angel's dad is not around but the man I am engaged to is here. I have never put my hands on Angel as I am scare I will take out the angry I have towards her father and the abuse he out me through to her.
Okay her problems are :
Needing to know what is being said all the times even if not about her
Bed times(she goes to bed at 9 but does go to sleep till 1)
doing school work
not cleaning after self
wanting it her way ALL the time
What do I do? She whines when I take things away almost like a five year old. I send her to her room but she cries louder. I dont know what to do?
Your child is screaming for attention and punishing her is only going to cause her resentment and bigger problems for both of you when she becomes a teenager. Both of you have had to struggle and it has caused a lack of stability for her. In addition to that, you are engaged to someone who she probably feels is taking away some of the closeness she needs to feel from you.
I suggest you make alone time for the two of you with no interruptions from anyone else. She may be in a more stable enviroment but she needs to feel that she is an important part of your life. The easiest way to turn a negative into a positive is instead of punishing her for doing something wrong reward her for doing something right. Listen to her and make her feel special.

You should speak with a school counselor and see if they can point you in the right direction before it does get worse and you and her can't work together. To me it sounds like she has trust issues is the biggest problem think about this she was sent to live with her aunt twice cause you lost the roof over you all heads. Once can happen but twice come on sounds like you need to get things in order or allow her to live with her aunt where she is in control and it's stable. I am not meaning to be mean what so ever I am just looking from her shoes. Trust is the biggest issue in her that she is having she just doesn't know who she can trust and what is what. I am going to college for this.
