ANSWER:

I think a great curfew is in bed by 10 on weekdays and then home by 12 on weekends. Yet, I believe that should be the least of your worries right now.  I think you may want to consider seeing a family therapist. They could give you some insight on how to have a more effective relationship with your daughter. I have a feeling she wants to be independent, but also wants a relationship with you and doesn’t really know how to do it either so she tries and then gives up. This is often a challenging time for parents and teens. Seeking out help could help you both have a more fulfilling relationship as she prepares to leave your home.
