I can’t control my daughter

I have two daughters and my 10-year-old is a handful. She has a strong personality and always wants things her way. She struggles to sleep at night and becomes anxious at times. When I’m talking to someone she tends to chip in and say whatever comes to mind.

I’m divorced and a free spirit and I don’t believe in routine. We eat when we want at night and the kids often fall asleep next to me in my bed as we enjoy cuddling in front of the TV.
