I don't know what to do with her. I've tried EVERYTHING! She's sooo bad. She never listens and she's always screaming! I've tried being tough on her, I tried talking to her, I've tried ignoring her behaviour.. NOTHING WORKS! She's always trying to make me mad, she likes making me mad! I don't know why she does that, I took her to 6 different therapists in the last 7 years and nothing! I can't deal with it anymore, I'll go nuts! I've even considered shipping her off to my mom who lives in Europe for a year. I don't know what else to do.. She also has some REALLY "dangerous" friends. What can I do? She's always been like that, it's not that she's going through her teen age. She's 15.Answer Question

Sending her to Europe is rewarding bad behaviour. What kind of a message is that sending her?
You need to get to the root of her behaviour. Is she rebelling because you are too strict?
