My 7 yr old daughter is difficult, don't know what to do. She is disrespectful to me, fights doing homework, and screams and cries when she doesn't get her way.Also, can act up in stores.  My daughter is good at school but when she comes home she is a different person when she gets home.

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

So sorry that you are having difficulties with your child within the home setting.  May I suggest a few websites geared to help calm the angry child:

KIDLUTIONS http://www.  (Check out the Anger Toolbox)  Dr. Lynne Kenney is the FAMILY COACH and offers sage information on making your home more peaceful

Listen to me Please:  This website concentrates on how children and parents can understand each other when there is a battle of wills.  

Also, consider discussing these behaviors with the school guidance counselor who may have many area resources and be able to set up a home-school behavior chart.

Good luck!
