Hi all I'm new here and seriously need help,advice! Our 12yr old daughter is totally out of control screaming at me and her stepdad! She also throws things at me! I tell her this behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it at all! I have taken away her iPod,texting privalages,grounded her.Spanking is not an option in our home. Please any advice will be greatly appriciated

Strip her room of nothing but a bed with a pillow and blanket. Make her earn everything else back.

Unless of course there's a serious reason for her acting out. Then you'll have to work that out first.

 There are a few options still.  You could have her write sentences 50 times the behavior you want her to choose rather than the negative choices.   Take her to the doctor and a child behaviorist as well.  Is this behavior recent or ongoing but elevated to a new level towards you?

This is exactly what I was going to say. I have an 11yr old and this is exactly what I would do if she were behaving that way.

Her room is stripped of completely everything possible this behavior is new. She had her tantrums as a 2,3,4,etc.but now they are coming back she has never threw things at me b4! She sees her dad every weekend! So the throwing and getting in my face screaming is new! All our children will be starting counseling soon. Her ACTING this way comes on when I ask her to do something or tell her its bedtime. I just listen to her scream at me and let it go until she is done. Then I will ground her etc. I have tried talking to her as well nothing is working. I think her dad is telling her to act this way but I'm not 100%sure :-/

Thank-you wonderful ladies I will be doing if not done all the above hopefully she will straightn her behind out! I'm really at the end of my ropes with this behavior from a CHILD and I for one will not become an abused parent at the hand of my child or any child.

My mom brought me and my bro to a shelter home for kids who're too out of control for their parents and we talked to a counselor about staying there and my bro started crying saying he'd change if he could go home.... lol
