Re: whos the boss

Sadly, she will never be the same Madison that she was before. Her world just expanded from only family and close friends to school life and other children. She may see attitudes from children at school and decide to try them out at home. She may also have a false idea of what it is like to be a big girl.

The only thing you can do at this point is to get on top of it. She needs to know that just because other kids may talk like that, doesnt mean she can. I tell my oldest who is 12, " I am not one of your friends so please don't talk to me like I am"

Children are notoriously different in school and I really think it is the set up that makes them that way. In school, the rules apply everytime without fail, compasion, or feeling. At home, we feel sorry or decide to give them one more chance....Over and over. This means that they become totally different people when they are home with us.

I would suggest drawing your line in the sand and letting her know that you will not put up with it. Then being strong and consistent until she realizes it isn't worth the effort
