Check that the brake pads aren't catching on the rim or the tire, check that the brake cable isn't rusty inside the housing or corroded. check the bolt that attaches the brake caliper to the frame to see if it is too tight.

Is there a video that will show me how to put the breaks on this bike

Might be ... are there no breaks on the bike now? What kind of brakes are you talking about? Coaster (move the petals in reverse to activate) or hand. There should be a bracket on the front and rear forks to mount hand brakes. From your picture, the bike already has at least a front hand brake. The brake simply attaches to the bracket with a nut and bolt.

If you will go to a Bike shop in your community, I am certain they can give you assistance in operating the bike as it is now or adding additional brakes as you may deem appropriate.

Thanks for your question @

When I take my daughters front wheel off her Diamondback bike I need to reajust the front break. How can this be avoided?

By always placing the wheel firmly into the fork's dropouts and then then tightening the quick release. Adjust the brake centering and it should always stay the same UNLESS the brake centering itself is moving every time you disconnect the brake to remove the wheel. Then it gets complicated.

I am having trouble putting the front tire on my Schwinn Merge 26'' Women's Mountain Bicycle

The easiest way to put on or take off a tire is to release the break cable. Bikes nowadays have a quick release for the break cables and that will release the pressure on the break pads.

The brakes on my daughters GMC Denali road bike are too far of a reach for her. I tried bending the levers but it is still just awkward to her hands down there. is there another set up that might work with...

you can loosen the tensioner and then put some wire ties (zip ties) to hold them part the way down so she can reach them you can also get different break handles a t a bike shop.
