I have never wanted children, and to be honest 38 years later I still don't. Having a kid in the house is driving me nuts. I really don't know how much longer I can do it.

SD has very bad hygiene problem that is driving me nuts. I feel like at 17 she doesn't need anyone to tell her to change your underwear, brush your teeth, wear clean clothes etc etc

I'm thinking WTH did your mother teach you or is this why your mother is so disgusted?

Last month she had dirty clothes mixed in with clean cloths and shoes in the bottom bathroom drawer that smelled like a dead body decaying. So I make her take her cloths out and tell her no cloths or anything in that bottom drawer. What do I see in there last night? Yep clothes again! I tell her take those clothes from our of that bottom drawer, she ask me why. Now I'm annoyed that she ask why but I respond simply, you are irresponsible and if I see anything in that bottom drawer it's going in the garbage.

Next she loses her cell phone charger, calls me to ask me if I have it, really? Long story short I don't have it. She as can she borrow mine, my response "No you need to learn to keep up with your things you may place your phone on my charger but you may not remove my charger"

Now this morning she decided I want my phone never mind if I am getting dressed and not properly ready to be seen to the world and barges in. Well Tuesday when she returns a conversation will be had, when that room door is closed you do not barge in.

Ughhh. Yes my mom and I do not get along but thank God she taught me about cleanliness.

    Sounds like she is trying you to see what she can get away with as well as being a self absorbed teenager. Hang in there!

    If she doesn't understand why, it sounds like you need to have a more clear conversation about expectations and consequences of not meeting them. I'd also hold off on the threats of throwing things away...they don't help anyone.

    That would drive me crazy, too... it is amazing how different teenagers can be, and how much frustration they can lead to when they are being pills. I would also try to create some insurance of behavioral expectations and consequences, as outlined above. Ugh, sorry about the headaches!

    Thanks everyone. Tomorrow will be the big discussion per se, unfortunately, the conversation should have taken place sooner vs. later.

    Expections will be discussed, it is obvious no one has ever sat her down had the conversation and have allowed things to run amuck.
