Last year when she was in the 12th grade she would stay up all night and talk on the phone bothering her sisters while they tried to sleep...Then get really pissey about being told to quiet down.
She is finishing up her first yr of college and her roommates don't want her back next year, but they are going to still room together. She is home now and is once again staying up all night playing music, video messaging with her BF and all the while with her door open. She does not understand boundries or how her behavior is really irritating and dis respectful. She says she doesn't know why her room mates doesn't want her back and she doesn't care. she is loud and outgoing and just doesn't "get it" that she needs to be quiet after a certain time...thing is she sleeps all day too.
I need any and all advice...please??

that's a tough one. You would think the roommates not wanting her back would have made an impact even if she didn't get it when you or her siblings complained to her. I would try talking to her about it again, but she may not get it until another roommate ditches her, which is very likely to happen. When it does resist the urge to say "I told you so" and ask her what she thinks the problem is. She needs to come to realize and believe this on her own before she will change. While she is home you can make rules at your house, but a real change isn't going to happen until she sees that it is a problem.
