Mine got a lot better when she was 16 and had a Saturday job. More money, knackered, not allowed to be cheeky at work... all those things made her grow up a bit.

DD 16. Went through a phase of snapping when spoken to and stropping off if challenged from 14.5 to 15.5. Now out the other side and she is generally quite a nice person. Polite and chatty.

We get the odd flashback as she is quite stressed about coursework deadlines and exam preparation for GCSEs but not too bad really.

Deep breaths and remind yourselves it will pass and can be survived with chocolate.

Nothing particularly useful to say to you. I been in same boat for almost 2 years. My dd also 15. Hoping at some point the light will be at end of tunnel. Have you tried talking to her. Is it her attitude or worse.

Not so much. My eldest has just turned 16 and I regular feel I should crawl back under the rock whence I came!!!
