These Are the Most Common Mother-Daughter Arguments ...

1. Typical Teenage Rebellion

The rebellion is typical, anyway, but every daughter rebels a little bit differently.

2. The Fight for Independence

This begins sometime around 12 or 13 and ends when moving out is an actual reality because the adult world is a scary, scary place.

3. The Fight against Authority

All authority, but especially maternal authority. A girl will spend hours plotting against her mom's authority. Her plans are often diabolical.

4. The Battle to Become a Woman

Daughter is eager to be her own woman. Mom is determined to hold onto her little girl just a bit longer. Epic battles ensue.

5. The Attempt to Pull Away Daughters always try to pull away. We don't know any better. We're really just asserting our independence but we don't realize the error of our ways until a bit later.

6. Parents Just Don't Understand

Mothers, you will hear this. A lot. Like all the time. However, even though your daughter will accuse you of not understanding or not remembering what it was like to be her age, try to remember – it'll help.

7. The Disappointment Disagreement

Ugh, this is the worst. Knowing that you disappointed your mom is the absolute worst. It makes you feel so defensive that an even larger fight is usually the result.

8. The Mom Knows Best Fight

Daughters seem incapable of believing this until after the fact. In retrospect, however, mom generally does know best, yes.

9. The Grown up Disagreement

If you got a nickel for every time you told your mom you're not a little kid anymore, you'd have enough money to move out.

10. The Friend Fight

Daughters, you will always have at least one friend your mom doesn't like. Mothers, that friend isn't going anywhere until your daughter's good and ready.

11. Of Periods and PMS

Sometimes you bond over your menses. Sometimes it's just World War III.

12. The Clothing Spat No matter what your style, your mom will have something to say at one point.

13. The “I'm a Cool Mom” Battle

Daughters, there will come a time where your mom tries to fit in with your friends. This too shall pass.

14. The “do as I Say, Not as I do” Fight

This fight is twofold. Sometimes your mom wants you to follow in her footsteps and you resist. Sometimes you try to follow in your mom's footsteps and she resists. Fun times!

15. Boyfriend Battles

Or girlfriend battles, depending on who tickles your pickle. You'll have at least one partner whom your mom just hates, though.

16. Party Debacles

When you first start attending parties or going on dates, the fights are never ending.

17. The Inevitable Fight about College Life

Your mom is undoubtedly proud of you, but college is just as scary for your parents as it is for you. What's the most common fight you have with your mom?
