So I wanted to whop my daughters but yesterday I had a new cable provider in my home installing when she got home from school she saw the different cable box and came running down the hall with the new remote in her hand raising her very upset voice she got to my door tossed the remote and says I don't want that small box I want my silver one back and this is just great I have to learn how to use this one now this is crap my response was pick up that remote you better watch your mouth and when you want to get a job and pay for the cable then u will have a say so until that happens u can stand in the corner holding that remote in the air for 15 mins while I took her box out of the room and now u have nothing to complain about u have no box I was extremely shocked at the way she acted like a spoiled brat I have now stepped back and relized some adjustments need to be made Ahhh mothering and who the hell does she think she was talking to like that she lost her mind

It sounds to me like she expects to be consulted on things like this. The person who pays for the service is the person who decides which one to have, not the smart mouth kid. Tell her that you will be happy to switch back when she pays for cable service.
You didOK. It would have been better if you had stayed calm. (Can't tell if you were shouting too from your question.)
