My dd fights me on everything and thinks she knows best. I don't have a career, I have a diploma but she seems to think she knows it all.
Why does she tell me I need to get a job? I am a SAHM and she has little respect for me, she does not do her homework, bearly paassed the sixth grade and does all I ask her not too. She even gets an attitude because I tell her I will not go broke like her Grandmather likes to every pay week to please her.
Should I go back to school and prove her wrong, or stay home as I want and my Husband has asked me to. He likes home cooked meals and a clean house, but my dd is too much at times.
She is 12 and has an attitude with me.

You have to earn that respect and knock her down a peg or two. I would not put up with that disrespect. She would be grounded until she had a better attitude. Don't go to work just because she told you too. Don't talk about her grandmother negatively to her. When you just do this you are just bow down to her level and keep the disrespect and fighting going. How does you husband react to her talking to you like that? He needs to have your back! Stand your ground and Stay strong! Good Luck!
