My 15-year-old daughter has always had a problem with the rules .. whenever i try to get her to clean her room it ends in disaster and tears and her running away to her dad. This has happened like 3 times in the last year and a half. Last year she stayed away for nearly 3 months. Last week same show - she left to visit her dad for the weekend and left her room like a bombing had taken place. I called her to confront her that yet again she did not keep her promises to me and as a result she does not want to come home.
Now she is blaming my boyfriend (he can't stand her she says) because he's stricter about the rules than me. She hates where we live, how we live, whom i live with .. so she wants me to sell my house - find us an appartment in the city and then what ??
I am really at my wit's end .. the blame game - i cannot take it anymore. Last weekend i had a nervous breakdown and it was not a pretty sight to see.
I understand where all of her issues are coming from but i really do not want to make these life changes for a teenager who will not be satisfied or show me respect anytime things do not go her way.
Thanks for your comments in advance
