I'm a parent of a 9-year-old girl who tends to misbehave at times. I'm looking for some tips on how to discipline her without taking away her privileges or rewards. I don't want to use punishment as my only means of discipline, as I believe in reinforcing positive behavior as well.
Recently, my daughter has been talking back to me and not following my instructions. I feel like I've tried almost everything, from stern talking to, giving timeouts, and taking away her allowance, but nothing seems to work for long.
I want to find a balanced approach to discipline her, where she feels like she's being held accountable for her actions, but not completely deprived of fun activities and rewards such as going out with friends, watching TV, or playing video games.
Any advice on how to handle this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
