Thanks for all the good advice people.
That'* a good one.....and just how would you propose to do that? Can't lock her up. She comes and goes as she pleases at any hour. Uses windows to sneak out. I have all the window barred to keep her from breaking in when we are not home. I could never trust her alone at home.
One time we had to go away for a night. She was supposed to spend the night at a friends but instead snuck into the house with her boyfriend and partied all night. I found the nudie pics to prove it.
She has been expelled from school....all of Grade 10....been arrested for theft and fighting.
Even stole money from the Church collection box after reading the gospel at Mass.
One nasty tough cookie. I don't understand because we certainly didn't raise her that way.
She attended Catholic primary school and we are devout RC.
Her 16 year old brother is totally the opposite. A good boy who is getting straight A'* and is relatively obedient, and never steals.
As soon as I found out about the theft she was banned from ALL computer activity indefinitely.
She is also banned from driving so has no chance of even getting her license....she has her appointment for her second test next week (failed her first one cause she was never home long enough to practice).
We drive her to work or she walks. It'* only 1/2 hr away.
She works at Dairy Queen...two months now, and will be paying me back for all the items she stole. I have them all hidden away.....except she wore the $500 gown to grad.
Took her stereo too.
Unfortuneatly she needs her cell phone for work and is on our family plan. Last month she used 2300 minutes compared to 200 minutes for me and wife but has paid me the extra $200 for text messaging 1500 times in one month.
Kicking her out. As I said, we have done that over a year ago. Yes, all clothes in the driveway and rekeyed the door. She kicked the door in and we called the police. Moved in with her boyfriend for two months. We ignored her, even thru Christmas, it almost killed us. She came sobbing back swearing to change her ways.
She was fine after that for a year but now seems to be slowly slipped back to her old ways.
She is not 18 until next week. Things will have to change.
I have collected all the clothes she has thown on the floor, bagged them and told her I will take them to the salvation army box unless she pays me $1 for each item.
We have told her she will be OUT for good if not.
What else can we do
