I'm at a loss at this point. She argues the second she gets up until I find myself hiding in my room to avoid interaction with her. I don't know what to do anymore. When I confront her she blames me says I'm a horrible mother and never give her any attention. Someone help please!

I as well have a 17 yo daughter, she also likes to argue and it gets real bad if I tell her NO. If she is not getting her way it is hell around here. We are just the opposite though she stays in her room. I don't argue with her if she gets mad or upset about something I have said to her and starts her yelling and carrying on I just look at her and tell her enough I am not going to listen to it and when she can act like the adult she thinks she is then she can talk to me until then I do not want to hear it ( I am a master of the silent treatment).
The first thing I would say is take back your home ! and control of your home. They are stuck between being adults and teenagers and it gets better I promise, my daughter has figured out that if she is hateful and argues she does less then when she is polite and respectful. I keep control of the car she has a job and knows that if she wants the car to go to work then she must prove that she is responsible enough to have the car and if she is going to act 12 she doesn't drive. I have also made her pay for her own car insurance if I have to pay her part she doesn't drive the car for 6 months till she has the next payment. Just remember they grow up and all this goes away stay calm and in control.Hope this helps !
