I was like this as a kid. I was a perfect angel anywhere I went until I got home. MY mom taught me to respect others and how to act in public, but I was awful at home, I dont know why really, maybe it is just a stage, but I grew up to be a respectful, honest person. So, It sounds to me, you are doing ok. I was also a christian, and I did the same things. Just keep on her to realize in the real world she'll have to do things she doesnt want to and make sure you show her that, because that is where my mom messed up, not teaching me that, but otherwise, I turned out ok.

Wow that does not sounds good. You should tell her to be nicer to you and act good at home as well. Acting good outside of the home is not enough. Thanks for posting this. I think kids should learn how to be nice these days. Because sometimes they don't act good.
