hello everybody I am a single working mom of a 14 year old daughter I work 2nd shift which is 3 p.m. To 11 p.m. And that is not ideal for me I have tried to find another job that gives me better hours but I can't afford to make minimum wage and pay the bills. I've talked to my boss and hr about getting moved to another shift but there aren't any openings so if I don't work, no money is made. she used to be very smart very respectable and a sweet person but lately her grades are slipping she's being very defiant I'm having a lot of problems with her attitude and a smart mouth. Today I came home from work early and she decided that she didn't want to be in the same house as me and she was going to leave I told her she was not allowed to leave and that she has to go to her room she proceeded to leave this behavior is unacceptable to me and I told her that she is still a child and that she has to obey me she told me that I get to do whatever I want to do so why can't she do whatever she wants to do and I told her because she's not an adult she got very upset slammed her door and locks me out men in with her I do not know what I'm supposed to do from here please help me in any words of encouragement would be awesome thank you.
