My daughter, who is 11 on occasion would try and talk back to me. I make sure to put her back in her place and she know that when I start taking things away from her like her ipad, tv, phone, etc. She gets the message and knows that I will not tolerate that.
I don't really like to use physical punishment (smacking) but if my dd starts goinngoff on her usual tangents of "but you don't understand, you think it's SOOOO easyyy, I can't do it I have ADHD"...I just give her one of those Gibbs' slaps (NCIS) to the back of the head. It's the only way to shut her up! There is NO reason she can't do it because she has ADHD, she just has to find another way, method, unit of understanding, which I willing, able and ready to work with her on..as long as she is not "going off the deep end", I just can't take all the whining, crying and such!
