a perception : your problem and my problem

the other day my daughter was ticked off by her mother, for not taking off the shoes in the bed room; probably something that happens between all mothers and daughters. It went something like this:-

mom : it is so irritating.. keeping your shoes on, in the bed.
daughter : a 'so what ?' look ...
mom : take them off.
daughter : no reaction

after sometime i suggested, "i am not getting irritated but it definitely is a bad habit"
promptly , my daughter took her shoes off.. to my wife's surprise.

she later explained " if mom got irritated it is her problem, but if i develop a bad habit, it is my problem"
