I lost it with my SD tonight. *edit*

She has the worst attitude towards me. Treats me like crap. Well today the talking back, blatantly disobeying, eye rolling, foot stomping, door slamming... then she spat in my face.

I lost it. Grabbed her by the arm, led her up to her room. Set her on her bed. Took away her tv box, her Nintendo SD and her nook. Put them in a trash bag. Shut off her light and closed her door. She's in there crying now.

Hope I didn't grab her arm too hard, I'm not sure how hard I grabbed her.

I feel bad now but not that she didn't deserve to be punished.

Sigh.

She's 12.

Edit:

Faq's:

Yes, her her father supports me. He's at work until midnight.

It started when I told her to brush her teeth. She said no. I told her now. She spat.

She would have been smacked for spitting on me. Then I would have done the rest.

You handled that a lot better than I think I would have.

What has Dad been doing up until this point about her behavior towards you?

It doesn't sound like you lost it. It sounds like you took control of a situation involving a disrespectful child.

You are right she should not be treating you that way.  Where is her father?  He should be the one to put a stop to it.
