I understand your concerns. You can try out these: 1. Take her out for lunch or dinner and have a frank conversation without getting angry or irritated. You have to listen without judging her 2. Ask her about her ambition and reams. 3. Help her to set hergoal. break the big goal into smaller goals. example. If she says she wants to get rich then she will have to get an education, do work or business etc. So she has to begin studying. 4. Do not criticize herfriends because at her age they are very important. 5. Plan a timetable to study using her ideas. Trust her and believe in her. Listen to all her dream without being sarcastic. 6. Empower her to make decisions and be very supportive. I hope these give you some ideas. For younger one Routines help children and they need routines. Sit with her and plan the routine. Take her inputs and ideas. Allot Time For all activities like play, study, entertainment.Allow her to play after she returns for 1 hour. Set a time period to study for 1-1.15 hours. Allot 25 min study and five min break in this period for various tasks. Keep a check list for her to tick off. Be gentle and firm that she has to follow the routine. Slowly all this routine will help. I hope these give you some ideas. All the best and do keep us posted. I hope this helps.
