I feel like a worthless idiot. I can't help my child with he

I feel like a worthless idiot. I can't help my child with her homework and she's almost 15 and refuses to try. My mom is at my house helping her and I had to leave because in my mind the situation is more chaotic than it is in reality, and I would make things bad. It gives me jitters and panic attacks that my daughter is so unorganized and things take her so long because she refuses to give effort. It really depresses me. I know I'm her mom and I'm supposed to have this patient love but I don't have it. I care about her but she aggravate me because she does things on purpose or she'll go to no end to get her way no matter how inconvenient it is for any one else

I just read where you can burn bay leaves and leave the room and when you come back to the room the aroma is medicinal----supposed to help ease anxiety. I may try it. :)

@Azzie I hear you for the most part but she needs to earn trust as well. I'm not going to allow her to terrorize me. It's rather beat the living crap out of her or call the police. The second hole she purposely kicked in my wall and we may have to agree to disagree if the only way I can make her trust me is to allow her to tear up my home with no consequences then I just don't need her trust. I've taken her to counseling several times. I'll go to the moon and back to help her but she's not going to terrorize me while I just lay down and take it.
