  • GOOD QUESTION! My younger daughter is 11 and still hasn't grown out of it. Let me know when you find something that works other than duck tape or super glue (since those things are frowned upon and all) LOL

  • Walk away, or tell her you don't want hear it and the discussion is over until she's ready to talk to you like an adult. I realize at 9 they are not adults but they do have the ability to have civilized conversations. I say this to my kids any time they smart off, or try to talk back. Walking away helps reinforce you're serious.

  • depends on what you mean by big mouth ,,,,i use that term when they tell something their not suppose to....and if that is the case then , just dont talk about things you dont want repeted in front of them.....if your using the term to mean she is always talking i say listen with half an ear and enjoy the time she is talking to you because in about 3yrs she is going to shut up and never tell you anything as a teenager....good luck
