How do you react to SKIDS backtalking, attitude, disrespect, etc....
I know you have to pick and choose your battles, but what do you say or how do you react to their constant BS. Like their back talking, attitude, expectations, disrespect, my biggest one is when they do not do their daily chores or they are done 1/4 ass, etc.... (They are 17yr SS and 14yr SD)
Please give me some examples of reactions or replies I should have. Lately I have been mainly just ignoring most of sewage that spews forth from their mouths, even the simplest of things. Because if I remotely even engage in any conversation it leads to a mountain of shit. Especially with 14yr SD. I also, as calmly as I at certain times, will reply with 'you need to speak your father about that' and if they continue which their generally do I reply 'with sorry but that is not my responsibility or problem so you need to talk to your dad'. (depending on the topic of conversation the verbage changes)
Please give me any, some or all input here.
