My Bad Daughter--Help!
My daughter is always fighting and swearing at me. She behaves perfectly at school but is a totally different person at home.
For example the other day she got in an argument with me because I didn't allow her to have a pair of curlers (she has got straight hair and is constantly nagging me to get her some curlers because her friends apparently have all got some).
I said no, and straight away she started cursing and swearing at me, telling me that I am a terrible mum. Then she will apologize and again the next day she will argue about something else.
This happens every single day and I just don't know what to do.
Please help me think of a solution
1. How to stop my daughter from swearing and fighting with me and
2. What is best to resolve problems like this and activities I can do with her or will help her bad behavior.

Hello, and thanks for telling your story here. It is great that you want to help your daughter, and that you're willing to take responsibility and ask for help here. That's the first step.

I also strongly encourage you to check out the audio program below. You can listen to free previews right away, and get your copy through download or buying the CD.
One way or the other, believe in yourself and your daughter, and focus on the good qualities in you both.
You can do this.
