I have attempted taking her 'privledges' away, she doesn't care. She is 14 and I have attempted in the past to get her to understand that those things are priviledges not rights. I am at my wits end, tired of the fights to get her to do things (which end in me crying or screaming) and doing whatever I told her to do. I am so fed up I have screamed at her that in a year (she is almost 15) that I would just ship her off to JobCor since I was the only one doing Anything around the house so that I would only have to clean up after me and the dogs. If I have to cook then I expect her (not that she does) to do the dishes. If I Wash and Dry the laundry then she is to put it away, properly (once again, she does not do this). Basically Everything you can ask a child to do she has stupid excuses as to why she doesn't do them. It has killed relationships cause I am a working mom (who suffers from a sleep disorder (since apparently birth) that makes me Constantly tired feeling) who barely has energy to cook dinner and be in bed. I have attempted playing video games with her (just in case she feels left out) but its like why should I play these stupid games if it doesn't change her attitude and laziness. Can someone please help? At my wits end.
