What do i do? My daughter is so moody and she is "hard-headed". To ask her to just pick something of hers off the floor makes her angry. She will not keep her room clean or anything else. She is always sneaky and tells fibs. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

You sould reward her.She probly don't feel like doing anything because you don't respect her enough.You might think you do,but you don't.Fibs.Fibs will stop when you start resecting.When I was a little girl my mom made me lie to her mother and she would lie to me.She was unbarabel!Igot use to it later own and we could tell each other everthing.You probly want to let her know she can talk to you.If you don't sort this out you might never grow close to your daughter. Tell her I said hey and I know what she's going threw.

Oh,my God are you my twin? My daughter will be ten in March and I thought i was readng about her in your message. She fights me on everything especially picking up her things adn keeping her room tidy. She is sooooo moody and everything, absolutely everything is a crisis. She also lies alot and is very sneaky. i love her very much but I cannnot trust her.
Hang in there you are not alone.

Boys are just as bad as girls, if you want to know. My teenage son would cry and fuss and felt that he shouldn't have to do any chores or keep up his grades or anything else because it was "his life". I don't know if this will work for everyone, but it has worked with him so far...
1. Write down what you expect her to do and the consequences of doing and not doing those things. Really think everything through and be complete. Both of you sign it.
2. Follow through!

In response to Susan with the 11 year old daughter.My daughter is the same age as yours and is on medication for hyperactivity.She is also very sneaky and lies about most things.
I can not get my daughtrer to pick up her things either and she does not listen .What concerns me most is that she spends more time looking for excuses for her lack of positive behavoir and I'm to the point when I'm not sure when she is telling the truth or not telling the truth. I am having a very tough time raising her and her father does not live with us .The most recent thing she did was to take the can of paint that was in her fathers place and she started to paint his walls with the varnish for the wood . He was beside himself.! To make matters worse,I am afraid to involve a man in my life because of my fear that the man will walk away as a result of how I'm reacting to her behaviours.

Gosh, do I know what you mean. My 11 year old is the same way. Have you had her tested for ADHD at school? If not, talk to her teacher and her pediatrician. Get her help now, cause it only gets worse if you don't.

Sympathetically yours,

I am twelve so I understand you. If I were you I would sit her down and talk to her when she is in a good mood. Tell her of your expectations. Maybe she'll listen. 

Name: Jessica | Date: Mar 17th, 2006 7:43 PM
Talk to her and tell her that all you want to do is help her.You'll see that when she grows up she will think that why did she never do what her mum said because all she wanted to do was to help.My daughter is exactly the same and I went on a holiday and when I came back she begged me not to go again because she missed me so much.

tell her a fib is a lie & that is not acceptable. it takes 2 2 argue & we r the mothers & they r the child. if they want 2 live like a pig do so in their room, door kept closed & let them roll in their mud. bigger fish will need 2 be fried in the near future pick the ones that really matter & dont let them distract u from that.

Lisa, she is also going through stage in life...which doesn't help you if she has ADHD or ADD. Also, you should pick your battles as my doctor told me. I allow my son to keep his room the way he wants it 3 times a week, in other words, I do not go in and make him clean it up. The rest of the week, he is to pick it up. The rules though, my living room and other parts of the house will be 'accident free'. No kid toys after 7 pm. No kids shoes, etc. Whatever is left after 7 pm is thrown away. I give him three reminders prior. He lost some toys and his sandals the first week, but none since, and this has worked since he was 5. He is now 10. Hope this helped?

i feel for you i have a 13 year old and for the most part she is awsome. However she has become a liar for everything. I feel this is ripping my heart out. I am strict but i always had good communication with her any ideas

I have a 14 year old daughter and I'm only 27.When my daughter started high school she started to get involved in drugs and started smoking.But I couldn't stop her.Now my daughter is a drug addict and I've seen her going on teen chat and going on sex cam with perverts.

well have you talked to her and see if there is something rong.im 11 and i think that is not how a 11 year old girl should act.

I have been your daughter, in a way..
reading this makes me laugh...sorry, not being mean... I DID THIS TO MY MOM, looking back...
i don't know the answer as in showing you what to do, from a moms point. but to say from a daughters I CAN RELATE just listen and be her friend.. does she know she has adhd??? We have adhd or add.. (your daughter & I) why i acted that way: I dont know and i look back and i hate myself for treating anyone that way let alone my MOM!! The best way i can relate it to tell you, I just wanted my mom to listen, really be there.. add/adhd makes geting any tasks or even get out of bed impossible. you could ask the smartest person in the world this question...and they could be dead wrong... SIMPLE SOLUTION: just ask her... she knows why... dont demand it and she proable not come right out... and just make a point that you would like to help her with what troubling her. I not a doctor but i believe THAT mothers know best. Good luck.. and if you want to her about my story with my mom go to forum:::

I am 24 year old on RETAILIN, I am NORMAL!

i just want to say i understand, these thangs are so emotional...
god bless you.

Name: AMANDA | Date: Apr 19th, 2006 4:55 AM
oh yeah, i forgot, how to help with cleaning up

rewards help they are good and challanges
but what sometime i still dont understand i why we have to do these thangs maybe if you explain why you want these thangs done and ask her if she does know why these thangs need to be done.. she will understand and do them..
just a sugestion if i help you or you want to talk you can email me at

My daughter is 20 and still being difficult when asked to tidy her room, (which resembles a bombsite all the time).
Althyough I know it may be too late to change her behaviour, I wondered if anyone had been successful in changing their 20 year old's attitude to chores or just keeping their room tidy?
