What should you do with your princess?
Be a good example. “Teach your teen girl to express her feelings more skillfully instead of mouthing off,” advises Liza Blau on the website Everyday Life. “Although it's not always easy staying calm when your teen girl is rude and disrespectful, resist the temptation to get into a sparring match. Talking back to her with an equal number of insulting remarks will only provoke her into making more rude comments and escalate the argument. By responding with angry words, you're validating her mouthiness by giving her power to push your buttons. Moreover, teenagers often model their behaviors after their parents' behaviors. If you behave in the same immature manner that you're telling her to stop, it sends her a contradictory message that such behavior is actually acceptable."
