The last time I had that problem it was with my daughter. What I did was take her cell phone and her mp3 player. I told her that as soon as I could see her floor and her room was clean she could have it back. It only took her 2 days. I took the cell on Friday night. That way she couldn't do anything until she got it back. Her room was clean by Sunday. She was mad but it worked.
I hope that this helps you Diana.Stacy I agree with you. It is very hard to raise a rebellious teen. I think that my hubby got all of his grey hair from 2 of our teens. I know that I had a lot of stress and a lot of sleepless nights when we where dealing with our worest one. But they do grow out of it and they love you once again. The best thing to do is to stay strong and ride the waves through this. If you tell them they will get into trouble for something make sure you stick with it. That is the best advise that I can give you on this. Good luck and my thoughts are with you.
Parenting a teenager is very hard because they are rebellious at this stage. I mean when you tell them to do this, they do exactly the opposite of it. I don't know if I'm the only parent who experiences this but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one struggling with defiant teenagers like lying , drinking, smoking and other things. But one thing is common for all of us, that we support and guide our children as much as we can for them to be able to have a bright future.
Thanks for the insite, i will have to try that.... , oh and i have one that questions everything as well... uhhhh drives me nuts.
I can understand how you are all feeling. I can remember when I was growing up. I had at least 5 chores that I would have to do every day. I am lucky if I can get my kids to do 2 chores a day and the weekly seems to get forgotten alot.
I have at home right now the 16(takes 10 hours to do anything you as)
and the 14( has to question everything you say)
and I think that I am going to go insane half of the time.
What I finially had to do was get them together the night before and tell them they can't do anything til they get their chores done first or I stop the evening games so that they will go and do their chores. It seems to be working for the most part right now. I am glad to hear that they are others out there that have the same problem. Good luck to you all
I'm struggling with the same thing. I have one teenager and one preteen and you swear i was asking them to rob a bank they way they respond when i ask them to do the simplest thing like put thier dishes in the dishwasher... I am going to start trying allowance i have not done allowance ever so maybe the motivation of them having to get cash will help. and with every chore they do not do i will deduct from the total.
So glad to see a group about Parenting Teens!
