My 17 year old daughter's words to me when I punished her for not going to school. I took away her cell phone and she went on a rampage about how just because I am her mom, it does not give me the right to discipline her or tell her what to do. According to her, if she feels like skipping school, it's her prerogative and she can do what she pleases. If I tell her to pick up after herself or stop using the dreaded F word, I am somehow wrong for telling her how to behave. She's not even 18 yet. If she's already this bad, how much worse can it get? She's turning 18 next year. Ugh!
