I need help in whether I did the right thing and the right consequence. I have had problems with getting my 14 yo dd to use chap-stick in the winter. Her bottom lip gets this crusty stuff on it and it even peels. I talked to her about it again and asked if she had been using her chap-stick. She claims she has been but I think she is just saying that to pacify me. I saw stuff on the wood foot board and she admitted that she picked stuff off her bottom lip and put it on our foot board of our bed. I think she did it to spite me because I said something about her lip. We made her clean it off the wood and told her that if she wants to do such a think in her home when she gets her own place that's one thing but not to do it in our home and to use a Kleenex. I also told her I don't want her to watch tv in our room. I am not sure for how long? We just got cable installed and have brand new remotes on 3 tv sets. I am just so grossed out wondering what else she has been 'putting around our house' (you know what I mean?). It's like 5 yr old behaviour isn't it? This is coming from a 14 yo! Did we do the right thing or what should we have done? What would you have done?Answer Question
