Nowadays, parents must be overprotective of their children because there are way too many negative influences that can take them down the wrong paths in life. Also, parents must crack down on the discipline and not be manipulated by their children. Your daughter must respect you. You are the parent and must always maintain that authoritative role. Since your daughter is so afraid of her dad, he must step in and enforce consequences for her inappropriate behavior. If she continues in such a manner, restrict her going out for a while. Take away her cell phone if she has one. Limit tv and computer use. Make her feel as though she is in jail so that she will understand that she needs to change her ways. You do not have to take such abuse from your daughter.
