I am having two trouble areas with my 11 y.o. 5th grader. Premature dating & meanness
#2 The same 11 y.o. is often disrespectful, even to her grandmother and rude to her cousins, my fiance, her own friends, and often to me. I am frustrated because she always has a way to justify her behavior... such as, "she's not my friend" or "she's rude to me too". She is outright defiant to me. I love her so much, but I want her to understand that this behavior hurts her more than me. I need to know what I can do to make things different for her. I was never, ever this disrespectful to my mother. I was afraid of my mother though, so I don't know the best way to address this. I just know what my mom did and what I am doing isn't working. Please help.
