I have a 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade girls. No matter what I do, they do not listen. If I tell them politely, if I scream, cry, beg, spank, ground, remove privileges, NOTHING IS WORKING!!! They look at me like I have 3 heads when I ask them to do their chores. They refuse to stop their bickering, whining and backtalk. Despite the fact that I get them up 2 hours in advance in the morning, they still miss the bus! The thing I really can't stand is the blank stare I get when I tell them to do something. Totally blank - nothing there. We are all in counseling. This is affecting my health, my SO's health and our sanity!!!
