Let me tell you something about Lord Voldemort. We were bestfriends in middle school. I know right soo embarrassing. I don't even.. whatever. Then in eighth grade I started going out with my first boyfriend Harry Potter. Who was like totally gorgeous but then went to Hogwarts. Voldemort was like weirdly jealous of him. If I blew him off to hangout with Harry. He'd be like "Why didn't you call me back?" And I'd be like "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then for my birthday I was having an all wizards pool party. I was like "Voldemort I can't invite you, because I think you're evil!" I mean, I couldn't have an evil wizard at my party.There were going to be wizards there in their bathing suits! I mean right, he was evil! So then his mom called my mom and started yelling at her. It was so retarded. Then he dropped out of school because no one would talk to him. He came back in the fall and his nose was gone and he was totally evil! Now I guess he's trying to kill Harry.
I mean I don't know any 9year old that would fall for that so...
But she could act like it is real instead of insulting her mother. Kids these days...When I was 9 I was living in a world filled with mystery, magic, might kings and all sorts of creatures. Of course I knew it wasn't real but it doesn't mean I couldn't act like it is! A little imagination doesn't hurt. Even now I like to travel to those mysterious lands of my childhood. Imagination is a wonderful thing. Better than any drug created by man. I seriously pity anyone who can't quit reality even for a short amount of time.

If you raised your child to use that kind of language, you deserve it
You don't have much experience with children? Kids can be very good liars. They'll act angelic at home and let their inner devil out once the parents are away. Many parents have no clue how evil their children are. This the reason why so many parents refuse to believe that their own child did something vicious. Haven't we all heard the legendary "My little <insert name> did that? Oh no! That's impossible! He's such a good kid."? It's always easy to blame the parents.
#4 Wow, don't you just seem like the kind of person who can't take responsibility for their own actions. "A child did something wrong, it must be the parents fault" Yeah not always. A 9 your old has been going to school for 4 or 5 years already, plenty of opportunity to pick up some bad attitude. Parents aren't clairvoyant, they can't tell kids not to use words they don't know they're going to use.
I agree with 43, and part of what 7 was saying (definitely not all). If the 9 year old was acting out and not doing her homework when told then there probably should've been consequences to her not listening. And while I understand wanting to use an incentive to motivate the child to finish her homework (which is good) I think lying to her isn't ok. Personally, I find it similar to when parents use "Santa won't bring you any presents if you misbehave, don't do your homework, etc." I don't see a reason to lie in order to get your kids to behave or do something, use discipline & consequences when they need correction and use real incentives for motivation. And discipline and consequences are not always spankings, that's what time outs, groundings and loss of toys or privileges is for.
I don't know whether to make a Harry Potter reference or to comment on your daughters foul mouth and lack of respect for you.
