  • It does seem too old to have to share but complaining is the purview of teenagers. Just ignore her

  • No teenage girl wants to share her room.

  • At that age I remember complaining about a lot of things. She will just have to get over it. Life isn't fair.

  • If she were here more time we would save up for a bigger place but she's only here 4 days out of the month.

  • There really is nothing to NOT complain about at that age. So ignore.

  • Your sd prob feels like she doesn't have a place in your house. When she's there, she likely sees it as she is having to sleep in her step sisters room - which is very different from actually sharing a room with someone. Just my opinion from having grown up in a blended family.
    If there's any way you can afford it I would move to a 3 bdr. If there truly isn't, make sure she at least has a say in how the room is decorated and her own space to store stuff.

  • 4 days a month...she can suck it up or sleep on the couch

  • Well hopefully she has dedicated space in the room and your dd should respect that even when sd isn't there.

    If both those things are good, then she just needs to suck it up.
