So my sd moved in w/us 6 months ago, she just turned 15. I love her to death but it is getting to the point to where i wish she moved back in w/her mother because she wont help w/any chores at home, & i know she is at the age to where you have to ask her to do things , just like any other teen but when i tell df i get no support from him,for example i do all the cooking, sweep twice a day n do the mopping& clean the restroom. She just sits on the sofa w/the laptop& daddys cell texting at the same time, we all get home at 6pm m-fri& right away she gets on & wont get off till about 10pm, on weekends she wakes at about 10am& can stay on all damn day & night& wont even offer to clean, if i sweep by she just moves her legs so i can swep underneath them, on weekends at times she will wash dishes after i have asked her& after they have been piled up all day, this morning they were all dirty from last night, i was fixing to sweep& do a load of laundry, df was going to cook breakfast& i told him that she needed to wash them& he sd no that he was i got upset & told him that she needs to learn that in this house she has chores, im sick n tired i just feel like leaving him because of this, i feel as if im just their maid, i do tell her myself& she just says okay but im tired that if i need help to keep my house clean i need to ask for help, she told my niece that she knows she has to clean but that she just not used to that, so that means she knows she has to but wont.im always mad & yelling here and they both just stay quiet,df starts to help but in a bitchy way.Im just tired of this.

Next question overall
Is there a way to change your SN but take all your credits with you?
