What should you do with your princess?
Set firm limits that rude and insulting back talk is no longer allowed in your home, writes Blau. “When your teen girl becomes mouthy, immediately end the conversation. Don't become angry, but calmly say, ‘I'm not going to continue this conversation when you speak to me so disrespectfully.’ To let her know that words hurt, you might say, ‘We can continue this conversation when you learn not to use words in such a hurtful way.’ If she continues to act like a smart aleck, leave the room. Disengaging teaches her that all conversations will end until she begins speaking in a civil manner."
