Does your teen start sobbing when she gets in trouble?
This is driving me nuts. I usually let my dh handle. For the second day in a row she has posted on facebook (today it was about planning to mis-behave in school) - when she's suppose to be studying. Her grades are crap right now and have been all year.
I simply had her hand over her laptop and phone until she's done studying - no yelling, no grounding. And now she's sobbing uncontrollably like the world is over. This is the same discipline DH has her do when she's not focusing - except he usually makes her do her homework at the kitchen table.
But when it's me - she starts bawling like I'm the big meanie. WTF? Personally I feel like its a victim ploy to take the focus off of getting in trouble. Even more annoying is DH takes her side and was right here and knows I didnt yell at her.
