My daughter just got her license last month.. Her father and I are not together and we are both remarried. We alternate weeks, the week she's by me she goes by him one night and vice-versa. She has always had a teenage attitude but it is worse since she got her license. Her dad says she can have the car when she's by his house only. Which is fine, they are his rules but now she says she doesn't want to stay her the one night( she's by his house) because she wants the car for school. Her dad does not live in the same school district so she has to drive a half and hour to get to school. I miss her when she's not around and I want to spend time with her. I'm afraid I lose my cool with her because all she does is argue with my husband and I. We have flat out told her those are our rules. I feel her dad gave her too much freedom too soon. Her dad lives 15 minutes from our house and they are all country roads. I know I have to stick to my guns. All we do is argue. I've been a mom that has been on the road taking her and her friends to games , volleyball practice for the last 4 years, the list goes on. How can I get her to understand without an argument?
