Need advice on how to discipline my 10 year old daughter
Over the Past 2 days I've found my self raising my voice and done it this morning too
I know her hormones will be all over place just now but how do I tell her off if she's done something and stuck to it
She's usually ok on Monday evening it was her attitude towards me after I told her off for getting annoyed at the laptop (was playing a game) then yesterday was pretty much the same as this morning was the attitude again

Also found she's not brushing her teeth properly or at all
I'm a single parent is there anything I can do to make her see if she acts out there's consequences

Go with the "logical consequences" of her actions with a way of her correcting it.

Won't brush her teeth - no sweets till she does it twice for 2 days.

Getting annoyed with the laptop - remove it for the rest of the night.

Being stroppy - no treats till she apologises.

My 10 yr old wasn't very good with her teeth - I got tablet things from eBay called ceeplac which show the plaque up as red which helped her concentrate on where she was missing.

We usually delay planned fun activities, e.g. cinema. Pretty staightforward -- if you're not nice, then i don't have to organize/finance your entertainment.

I've just taken DD (11)'s iPod and phone off her for being cheeky and ungrateful. She's doing her homework! grin
