  • Friend is in a very tough situation looking for options.

    I have a very close friend to me that recently moved to Florida. She feels like her parents are treating her unfairly and her older brother is taking advantage of that. He is 18 and was recently caught driving under the influence, when their parents confronted him about it he made up some story about how my friend was influencing him to take these actions. Her parents decided that the best course of action would be to ground her and let her older brother go off without punishment. She has already tried talking to her parents about it but everything she says they just respond by making the punishment worse. She talked to her grandparents and asked if they could adopt her, when they told her parents about it they cut off all her communication with her grandparents.
    Now she is thinking of running away, and everyone is worried about her.
