OK so things aren't going so well with my niece now...she has this major attitude when we (or I ) tell her no on something. She went and made plans behind our backs to spend the weekend at her boyfriends in another state and when she told me about them I told her no she got mad. Then her new friend came over and they wanted to go walking after dark and when I told her no she got even madder. Now she's storming around the house like we owe her something and won't say a word to us. And when she does it's with a major attitude like she's waisting her breath! I don't know how to handle this since she's been through so much, I don't want to make things worse yet I don't wanna deal with her attitude because I set rules either. This is so hard....I'm confused and annoyed and pissed all at the same time. I honestly don't know what the hell I'm doing.....my husband says treat her like she's my daughter. But if I do, she WILL hate me cause I don't agree on alot and have strict rules for my kids. Plus it's hard to do cause I've never raised a teen. So how do I know how to treat her if I never had to raise one before? I just wish someone would tell me exactly what to allow and say and what not to. Any suggestions???? My head is spinning and I'm losing patience fast. I could really use some help and FAST!!!!
