Teenage Daughter With Disrespectful Behaviour – What to Do
If you have a teenage daughter with disrespectful behaviour then I think I can help you. My teenage daughter was disrespectful to me for many years but I learned some timeless principles and now she is a fully grown woman who thanks me to this day. Here are some of my top tips for someone with a teenage daughter with disrespectful behaviour.
Listen To Them – They probably feel frustrated that you do not seem to listen to her. When she is talking try to completely clear your mind and just focus all your energies on listening to her without judging. Genuinely try and see if from her point of view and do not be thinking in your head “I wish she would stop talking so I could talk”. I know it sounds funny, but it’s true.
Consistent Punishment – Most parents will punish their teenage daughter is they are disrespectful once. They say “go to your room!” and she will usually do so. What you have to do is come up with some fair rules and be completely consistent with what you say. Every single time you say “I am going to punish you if you do that”, do it. What example are you giving to your children if you are inconsistent?
Also apply this to rewarding your children. Pick with them a reward that you both feel is worthy of certain behaviour and they will work towards getting that which you want them to. Be willing to change your rules though if they are unfair or circumstances change.
Love Them – In the end of the day if you take one thing away from this article, just love your daughter even if they seem disrespectful to you. They are probably going through a tough time at the moment and if you just keep giving them unconditional love they will eventually come around and see that you are great parent after all.
