She's a Kicker!

Hello,

We just received your book and are desperately trying to stay non emotional. Although, our daughter is angry over losing her cell phone for using horrid profanity, calling us names. She begins to thrown things at us, and kicks the walls. What should our response be when she is being destructive to our home?

Thanks,
T.

Hi T.,

Tell her that the next time she chooses to call people names, throw things, kick, etc., she will choose the consequence, which will be grounding for 3 days with no privileges (no phone, T.V., games, etc.).

If she does any of the above, follow through with the consequence. Please refer to this page for more instruction: Anger Management
