My 13 yr old DD is constantly getting into trouble at home. I am always telling her to stop doing something.... ie: squeezing the cats, picking on sister, into everything. i am at my wits end with her. Everything i have tried: taking away thing, cornor, spanking, grounding, even not allowed to do anything but sit in her room. it seems nothing bothers her on what punishment is handed out.... any suggestions would be great!
she goes to a therapist and sees a phycologist every month. She is also bipolor. she does have thing she has to do and its a chore in a half just to get her to do them. It seems to be a contant fight to just get her ready for school let alone anything else.Answer Question

What about some type of guidelines that includes things she CAN do?? I'm sure it's frustrating to you both to keep reprimanding her and punishing her. Like some kind of check-list of things to do when she gets home from school that leaves her little time for boredom. It wouldn't have to be all work/chores it could include things that she enjoys doing- playing games, watching tv, whatever she likes. It would give her some focus.
