Not weeks later.............. I don't care if she was just visiting, you should have laid down basic rules for her to follow.
If it were me, I would have TOLD HER ONCE where the towels go... after that I would have thrown the wet towels in her bed...
locked my bedroom door and made her clean up the spills on the couch to let her know you weren't fooling around.
Far as insulting you, you should have taken away her TV or some other priviedge.
Not weeks later complain about it.
I don't care if she was visiting... I think you handled it wrong.
YOU let the little brats run over you... !!!
and by the way... 17 is not a child, its almost an adult. I am thinking it was the 17 year old who stayed with you?
You let her run over you.. maybe not understanding the difference between her visiting and her staying there while her nmother was away.
You let her run over you. YOU WERE TOOOOO NICE to her !
