My DD is 16. We are on vacation in California visiting family and just enjoying CA. From day one my DD had a bad attitude. She didnt want to talk to anyone, be involved in anything, arguing every single chance she got, creating a ton of drama, and just was makign things miserable for everyone

She freaked out if she didnt get her way and honestly she was acting like a toddler. DH and I gave her a warning that if she didnt change her attitude about things we would be flying her home to stay with her grandma the rest of the trip. Her attitude got worse and so we bought her a plane ticket and sent her home

She said she is never going to talk to us again and blah blah blah but I think that it was worth it. We have all enjoyed the vacation without her attitude. We gave her a chance to change how she was acting and she knew the consequences.

Sorry but actions have consequences. 

She was more than welcome to stay if she had just been respectful to everyone else.

Really?
Life choices have life consequences. She knew what the consequences were. I would have done the same thing and no, my children are not burdens.

She was warned, she chose to call your bluff. Too bad for her for not listening, and good for you for sticking to your guns! Parents make threats like that all the time and don't follow through. I applaud you!

I would have done the same. Maybe missing out on something she thinks she's entitled to because she's part of the family will have a lasting effect. I also suggest having her volunteer in an orphanage or soup kitchen for the summer.

Good for you. Immediate consequences are the best way to discipline. She will never act that way again.

She's 16 not 6. Good job to the parents for not letting their child's behavior control the vacation
