Welcome to the world of many moms! How old is she? My daughter is a pain in my ass and tops the chart of rebellious teens. The best thing I have learned to do is..

1. stay out of stuff you don't need to be in. If it isn't life threatening and doesn't harm her in anyway, don't worry about it, she doesn't want you in her business and she wants to handle it herself, so let her.

2. Stand your ground don't let her walk all over you, if she wants her privacy that bad tell her for $150 a month the room can be hers and she can have all the privacy she wants.

3. She wants to call you a bitch, remind her it takes one to know one.

Don't scream and yell at her cause that is just telling her that she is getting to you, stand up for yourself and shut her down when she needs it. Think about it like this, one day she will be independent and have her own home and support herself, but she would never be able to do that if you weren't there for her and raise her when she couldn't do it herself. She'll get past this and it is just another phase in her life.

When I was younger I was pretty disrespectful myself I always said, "I don't care how old you are or how young I am, you don't respect me, I don't respect you" I'm not saying it was a good motto to live by but remember that when dealing with her, show her respect even if she doesn't deserve it, soon she will understand your not out to get her, your just doing your job as a mother
