Help for this??

I just can't find something that works for back talk, snottieness!!! I have tried a dab of soap in the mouth, taking some and then all of electronics away, sending her to her room. Taking time away from her friends. Maybe I'm not taking them away long enough??? Isn't a week long enough? What works??? I have talked to her till I'm blue in the face about her attitude. She does this too (I wonder to get attention I think in front of friends) and it's embarrasing!!

  • sounds like maybe she is having some sort of influnces from her friends?? monitor her around her friends and when she is talking on the phone or comp. etc. just to kind of get a feel to see if there is anything going on etc?? then she could be just going a phase as well entering teen yrs is difficult their going through alot of changes etc, maybe talk to her teachers also an see how thigs are going in school??

  • My MIL says that if mine do this, I should tell them, "Fine. I'll remember that next time you want something from me." very calmly, and then the next time they ask you for something or to do something for them, tell them no and why. She said it worked for her, but I've not tried it.
