I have a teen and a tween. My tween is starting puberty and got a blackhead on her nose. I re-stressed that she needs to make sure to wash her face every morning and night, to try not to touch her face, and to drink plenty of water to avoid getting pimples.
I thought my tween had it pretty good because she has a big sister to get tips and advice from.
I told my teen that is was time to get the zit cleaner and if she would help teach little sister how to use it, ect. Tween comes out of the bathroom with a red irritated face. Turns out that Teen gives tween anti-aging cream and wouldn't let her use cream cleanser that I buy for pimples.
I asked why, and teen says that the cream cleanser is hers and won't let her sister use it.
Am I missing something? Why can't she share? The cleanser comes out of a tube so there's no way it can be contaminated. Am I in the wrong for asking her to share, or is she just a greedy brat?

I do plan on buying my tween her own cleanser. I'm guessing it will take a few month's of her trying different cleansers to find the right one works for her, which is the same thing we did for my teen. The only reason I asked my teen to share is because it was bed time, and it's an hour long round trip ride to Wal mart.
Thank you ladies for saying that my teen is normal. I still feel really disappointed in her. She lied to me and pulled a crappy trick on her sister who was excited and looks up to her, and then got sassy about it. I even feel like not buying it for her anymore. Cream cleanser is a luxury and not a right, right?
I do agree with you guys, I will let it go. I guess I'm just bummed.
