Thank you Mark for contacting me, I am trying very hard to do as you say, and most of the time I'm doing really well but i know I'm too soft!
My eldest daughter isn't really naughty, its just the stuff that comes out of her mouth, she does not swear, its just the disrespect and her telling me when she is going to do something. She asked me this weekend if she could go on a sleep over i said no because of the way she had acted shouting and arguing.
She was really upset and really didn't think she had done anything wrong. how do i make her see that she is doing wrong? …also she has ADHD but very mild …there is no reasoning with her.
Many thanks M.
The strategy that applies here is the one entitled “When You Want Something From Your Kid” (online version – session #3). In this case, you want her to accept a consequence for her choice to shout and argue.
Let me know if you need any clarification after reviewing the strategy listed above.
