So, it isn't even 8:30 and I've already gotten into it with my 10yo. Every time I tell her it is time to start school work, she gives me attitude. I lost it this morning and threatened to take her play time on Club Penguin away forever if she doesn't shape up. (Sometimes I am dramatic). It seems impossible for me to not take offense at her issues.

What happened to the little girl who loved doing schoolwork???

She's there!! I see her sometimes peeking out.

I have always said that my punishments with her MUST fit the crime or she will give me MORE attitude. I also have to make sure that anythign I threaten, I follow through with.

What's worked this past week has been simply to sit there next to her in silence. When she shows a willingness to work, I start speaking. If she gives me attitude again, I stop and say, "We'll start again when you're respectful".
