I've been following your blog for years. I'm so glad you decided to homeschool your kids. Sorry you're going through this with your daughter. I can so relate. My 10.5 yo daughter is going through this same kind of thing. Makes me want to pull out my hair!! :p I haven't read the book, Parenting with Love and Logic, but have been using some of the techniques I've heard of. Yesterday my dd was being very testy. Wouldn't participate in homeschooling. All the attitude and "This is STUPID", "I don't care", "I hate you", etc. I sent her to her bed until she could be pleasant to be around. She came back, still moody... I sent her back. Also established a house rule to the effect, "If you refuse to participate, or are moody during school, you don't leave the house for the rest of the day, and no privileges, i.e. Nintendo, movies with the family, etc." Later on she was her regular self without all the moodiness.
Hang in there! You are doing the right thing. G-d will give you the grace and wisdom to parent and teach your children.
