My first born, daughter.... Rebellious since the age of 8. Spited me from this age. Manipulative, compulsive liar, theatrical, selfish, self absorbed. I remember such a cute lil gurl, loving, sweet and spunky. Once I got pregnant from my husband at the time. She hated the idea of not being the center of attention. I thought she would get over it but it was the beginning of a never ending dilemma. In a bit she'll, she lost her virginity in middle school, lied, stole. I took her to

If you are planning on continuing to allow her to live at home, then a contract is in order for her to do so.

This is not because of her behaviour, necessarily, but because you have house rules, and those rules need to be complied by. If you were allowing any other adult to live in your home, there would be terms and conditions to that residence, so it only makes sense that you apply those same terms and conditions to your children as they reach adulthood.

Compliance with contract is a must, and terms within the contract should state consequences for non compliance, up to and including immediate eviction.
