Defiant child

on Jun 14, 2014 @ 02:08 am

My soon to be nine year old has become increasingly defiant. I am at my wits end,we have tried every punishment from taking away her privileges to grounding her. Nothing is working. Any advice would be welcome.

I try to stay clear of punishment or negative reinforcement because studies show it simply doesn't always work in our favor. I know for me this was a big change in my thought process, I think mainly because negative reinforcement or punishment is so quick to come by when you're already feeling frustrated. For me I try to focus on positive reinforcement as much as I can. I find I have the best success with giving lots of attention for positive behaviour.
