Does anyone have any disciplining styles that will work for a teen? They're falling into the wrong kind of crowd and starting bad habits.
My nephew is starting to talk back and act up. I know when I was his age, I did too. His father and I got spanked by our dad. My brother doesn't want to hit his kid, which I'm all for, but neither of us believe grounding is working, he took away his cell and his mom tried talking to him. Some progress but I want to help find other solutions. Any suggestions. And if anyone tells me to try being their friend and not a parental figure, it's not gonna happen. I think thats dumb. Someone told me that, I asked them why they're an idiot.
