My daughter is 17 and she has decided that she isn't going to listen to anything I say. She makes her own plans, comes and goes when she wants to, and she is unbelievably rude and disrespectful to me. I am a single mom and I don't always have the strongest back bone, admittedly. I'm all for falling down and making mistakes, but I am terrified she will make decisions that will permanently affect her life negatively and possibly irreversibly. I have made the realization that I can no longer direct her; she will not listen. And the more I try the harder she rebels. I don't know what to do.
