Parents have Questions and Parents have Answers

You have had a hard week, Janey won't behave at school, Johnny wants a later curfew. You don't know what to do. Is anybody else out there dealing with what you are? Parents are the best people to get advice from for parents. A group of peers is a wonderful thing. We can learn from each other and help each other.

What to do about my tween?

~ anonymous

My 10yo thinks she can do what ever she wants regardless of consequence, I have been trying to teach her otherwise for months if not years to no avail.

Our most recent problem is she won't do her school work and she thinks she has to boss everybody around. All the books I have read and advice I have gotten does not help.

When it comes to her school work, the advice is to let her fail. Instead of threatening her that she will fail school to let her, that way she learns. I find it rather hard to do that. Aren't we responsible for our children if they don't do well in school? It's not like she has a learning problem. She is very smart she just refuses to try or she just rushes through everything.

With her bossing everybody around I think it's because she is the oldest of 3. We correct her but, after a few minutes she is right back bossing.
