I had my niece this weekend who is 13, my kidas are not even close to becoming teens. She goes back and forth between her mom and dad. Thursday night her my husband and her mom all sat down and agreed she would not talk to her dad on the phone while she is at our house she can text but thats it, thats because she will talk to her dad all day, and my husband wanted to spend time with her and for her to spend time with her sisters and my kids. Well Sunday she called her dad and kicked all the kids that were playing in my dd bedroom out so she could talk to him on the phone. I went in there and asked her to come out to the livingroom she told me no I am on the phone, my husband went in there and told her to get off her phone and she told him no as well then he kept asking her to get off the phone, then he went from asking to demanding it, all she kept saying was no I am on it. so then they started yelling at eachother, he told her sorry at the end of it and everything. well after the mother came to pick her kids up she talked a little to me (which she had already spoke to her daughter about what happened) then my husband tried to call her twice last night and then texted her to see what was happening. No answer. this morning she was suppost to bring her girls over for me to watch, and no show and then I texted her to see if I still need to pick the one that is at school up. and no response. So now my husband and I are being punished for her daughter not listening, she goes back in a few weeks so now I have to tell my kids because her mother wants to give her everything and let her get away with everything we can not see her, I am guessing since no response from my SIL! How do you handle a Teen that does not do the 1 thing you ask of her that was her only rule. then she is talking back.
