What has my teenage daughter got against me? No matter how hard I try to do what I feel is in her best interests, all I get is backchat and surliness. The only time she is ever nice is when she wants something. I get that I sometime nag, especially about homework + studying but her matric exams are comming up shortly and I never see her studying. How can I get her to understand that the result of these exams will determine what she will become and what quality of life she will have in the future. The constant friction is really getting me down.
