I'm a single mom raising my sassy 7 year old daughter

I am a single mom and my 7 year old daughter has a sassy attitude and blurts out disrespectful things sometimes and tries to always get attention. I've disciplined her many times and tried talking to her and just when I think she understands, she does it again and again. Can you please give me your advice?

7 and Sassy

Hey Liz!

I appreciate your frustration! It sounds like you are on the right track with the discipline. Here's the something to try. You'll have to be tough though.

I think the best remedy for your daughter's situation is to ignore the bad behavior completely. That means, your daughter gets no attention when she is being sassy, and she gets lots of attention when she isn't. Your daughter is going to test you, so it is very important that you are consistent. Do not explain anything to her, remind her, counsel her, or punish her when she is sassy, and as soon as she flips the switch. So do you. Good luck! Shouldn't take very long. :)
