Bedroom Gloom To Teen Spirit

The Family
The Buteaus of Bernardsville, New Jersey: Caitie, 14 (seated); stay-at-home mom Joan, 46; (out of the line of fire) insurance-exec dad Stephen, 44; Megan, 16; and Mitchell, 12.

The Fight
Mom says: “What is all this stuff? I can’t see the floor in here! Most of it hasn’t been used in years! I don’t even know where it comes from! I wish I could just scoop it all up and throw it out!”
Teen says: “Calm down. It’s fine.”
