Can you tell me how to deal with a teenager who shows no respect to her mom?


Answer by  tnnair (186)

You have to explain the teenager as to how behave with elders. Deal with them friendly and very politely with out hurting their mind. If they are not adhering, you can give instructions about DOs and Dont's with out any sentiments. If no change in his atitude even after all these, then he can be taken to a psychologist.

Be sure to keep firm limits. When your teenager behaves disrespectfully toward you, there should be a consequence for this behavior, such as taking away cell phone or internet.

Speak to her about their behaviour, and try and persuade her through various methods to change. If this doesn't work, perhaps a counsellor can try and intervene between the two of them.

It is very hard to instill respect into a teenager, this needs to occur when your child is a toddler. If you are in this position you should try taking all privilage away from the teen, remove his or her door from the hinges.

I have 2 teenagers with little respect for me. When their dad isn't around it's worse. What I do is tell the kids the way things are about homework, chores, talking back etc. I don't ask questions and tell the kids my word is law and not up for discusion.
