My 11 yr old daughter refuses to do anything for herself. She wont clean her room, bring school books home, pick up after herself, nothing!! I've tried every possible thing I need some new advice. I've done grounding, reward systems, grounded her out of her room, made her give toys away to homeless that she refuses to pick up, and made her stay in her room till she picks up something. She will just stay in there and play with more stuff but no pick up. I've cleaned it with her to show her how and help her. I've tried bribes, everything. I even boxed up everything and would only return boxes to her when she would bring home homework. Im lost. We are going through a divorce and I know she's suffering but seriously doesnt seem to care. I so need help or advice if anyone has dealt with this. At this point I think she's just rebelling but I dont know how to deal with it.
