Our expert says:
it is important for you to maintain your position as parent and if your daughter is not listening to you then a good place to start is to ask her why she is not listening to you. Many people at this age push the parental boundaries and it sounds as if this is what she is doing. It is also a time when boundaries need to be thought about and at times renegotiated. However, if you feel that the older girls are into things that are too advanced for your daughters age then you need to keep an eye on this.
One way of mainatining your boundaries is to link pocket money to chores and to coming in on time. The main message to give your daughter is that it is because you love her that these boundaries exist - for her safety.
There may be some things that you are prepared to negotiate - such as the time she comes home, and other things you are certain about. Get this clear in your own mind before speaking to her. What is important is that this is a conversation - if it becomes a lecture chances are your daughter will not take any interest!
