I just don't understand my 15 yr old daughter.
She is angry with me right now because I'm letting her younger sister finish up on the family computer. I set the timer for 30 minutes, there are 15 minutes left. My 15 yr old calls me a *itch and is now cutting up paper in to tiny piece onto the floor which I'll have to clean up later.
She has Asperger's, but I'm not sure if it means anything.
I don't get it. She got up at 7 am yesterday and was on the computer till late at night and still feels intitled to it. She acts as if she owns it.
I just don't get it. To talk to her you would think she is the most neglected and deprived. I really think she belives this. Yes, it's true we can't afford much and she may not have everything a typical kid of her age has. (I'm guessing) But surely, she must notice that she is getting the lions share of everything around here.
The only one with her own space, her own room, tv, dvd, etc. (her computer should be fixed next week) She's the only one with an allowance, is allowed special treats, ect (she's been asked not to eat the chocolates she gets regular around the kids, they can't have it, allergies)
She almost never asked to do anything, the only kid that doesn't do chores.
and yet, she still feels like life is unfair to her and tell us off regularly. She often tells us parents are mean, always trying to make kids miserable, don't show respect, expect them to do things, and the list goes on forever. Is this what she thinks of us? Why? She gets her way 95% of the time.

Why is she treated so differently than the rest of the family. Why is she allowed to call you a B*tch? When i read your lead line I was going to say because she is a girl.... then I read your post.
If you think she is entitled it is because she is. Two mom have suggested to "buckle down" and give her "structure" and I couldn't agree more. You are treating her like she is special not like she has "special needs". Being a teenage girl is hard enough and she will hate you one minute and love you the next all on her own, but you need to be firm and consistent now because it will get worse.
