My teen calls me a bitch all the time!!!!

my teen daughter (14) told me yesterday that her and her dad call me a "bitch" all the time behind my back !!!! I know I am strict and fight with her all the time, but now I have lost all respect for her and my husband. She is a typical teen girl, with all the drama. But PLease!!!! Do I really need to be called a "bitch" ????

  • Maybe, it is time to show them what a " Real B$tch " you can be.. especially, when they need you to do something for them!

  • I agree with superrmommy but I would include taking away her bedroom door.... take away her clothes... let her have three full outfits, one to wear, one to wash and one to spare... no makeup......etc

    As far as your husband, that is total disrespect. No matter what he thinks or feels he has no right to disrespect you, especially to your kid.

  • That is not acceptable and ill let her know that. I also would have a word or two with the Hubby who is allowing her to speak of you in that manner. You need to nip this in the bud before things get out if control!

  • First I think you need to talk to hubby and find out why he calls you one and why he is ok with her calliong you one as well. I would look at what it is that you are so strict about...teens need space, and to be able to do some things on their own and it's kinda hard from what you said to know, but maybe how you rae deserves a look as well. Then I would go from there...

  • I agree with all above answers. You need to take things away and have her earn them back. And being disrespectful isn't how you do that. Then a long, long talk with hubby. I am so sorry you are going through this. Good luck.

  • Don't disrespect her privacy. Did you honestly NEVER call your mother names as a teen? Talk to your husband. I'd be more worried about that. As for your daughter, cry. she'll feel bad and guilt will eat at her. If you act like a bitch it'll only re-enforce it in her mind.
