My 9. Year old told me to " shut up" what is the best way to deal with her disrespect? In public or elsewhere with other adults she is sweet and well behaved. However, she a totally different child with me. Other adults she is in contact with are shocked when I mention how she behaves.Answer Question

I took my daughters toys, t.v., even her bed out of her room (a bed is a privilege not a necessity). She slept on the floor for a week and had to earn back everything by doing manual labor. She doesn't have an attitude anymore. Tough love sucks but if it's not nipped in the bud right now you will have a monster on your hands come teen years.
