That’s when you parent and take away what she loves until she cleans everything

Uhg that statement. I really hope you didn’t merry whoever you did without being sure you could unconditionally love their pre existing child. Children mess things up, get used to it.

Don’t let her disrespect you like that. She needs to be disciplined.

Sorry to say not really a preteen problem more of a parent problem

Sorry OP, it's not just a preteen problem, especially with step-kids. My step-daughter, at 21, decided she didn't need to pay board OR help out with housework, or at least even pay for the electricity her pet tropical fish were using, even though she had a full time job. When her father told her to pay board she just laughed in his face, and when I told her to pull her head in and help, she moved out and refused to speak to me for over 6 months (but left the fish for us to deal with.) As someone pointed out, it's a parent problem - but the problem parent is not you.

Wow.. That is very manipulative of her. Well done for not backing down.

This is what spanks are for

I thought they were to make my stomach look flat and lift up my butt.

Take away her cell phone until she cleans up. No spoiled preteen can withstand such torture. She’ll work her ass off motivated by FOMO.

Stop enabling her. Google it if you have to.

Be a parent, don't be an un-willing maid.
