My 15 daughter is driving me nuts when she thinks that she talk to me anyway she wants. I have tried my best to explain to her how respect works and she turns it back on me and says " You have to give respect to get respect". That is the words I used. She keeps saying that I am not respecting her by treating her like a child and doing things like, and I quote " Ohhh my goshhh. I can't believe you are taking my phone (and) Ohhh my goshhh, I can't believe I have a bed time and have to give up my phone andddddd computer.- It is crazy to me that she thinks that it is ok to sleep with her phone under her pillow so she won't miss a text or call.
Am am wondering if I am going to make it past these years.
