Bad Attitude

My daughter is 10 years old and her bad attitude is that of a 16 year old. She's really good for the most part, but once something ticks her off, she's done.

She starts talking so snotty and when she's told to do something she cries and whines about it. If I ignore her, she screams. She complains about her homework and most of the time only does one side of it, saying she didn't know there were two sides to the sheet, trying to get out of it. She does that with tests at school too. Any advice, besides bootcamp, because that's already in the back of my mind.

Child with Bad Attitude
by: Sheri

About six months ago, I was in the same boat as you and would have described my daughter as a child with bad attitude. Like you, I was thinking that boot camp was my only option, but then I did some reading on this site and others and found out about this program called the total transformation that is a CD program that you can use at home. This means that you don't have to send your daughter away and that you get to work with her to help her change her behavior.

Obviously, you'll have to try the program yourself to see how it works for your child, but all I can say is that I learned some techniques that worked and have really changed my daughter in a positive way.
