Hi, Your granddaughter sounds as though she is starting what some would consider normal "teen" behavior. However, taking things away is counter productive. Grounding doesn't work. It will become a battle of the wills. There is a book that I use in my practice in fact I always have several copies on hand for parents of teens. It's called "Surviving your adolescents" by Thomas Phelan. It is a great book that gives your concrete ways to get through these rough years. It's available at any bookstore or online.
