  • Ugh enough is enough

    I am at my wits end with our 16 year old step daughter. She has moved in with us two years ago as her mother cannot handle her. We found out she has been cuffing school , smoking pot, drinking, she has been with a 22 year old man who lives on welfare , a druggie., and he is homeless. All her new friends now are the same as her boyfriend. She has always been difficult to deal with from day one. She was only ever asked to clean her room, do her laundry, clean her ginny pigs cage, and bring her dishes from her room, and go to school. She butted heads with us...wouldn’t do any of the above. If she was confronted on anything she wasn’t doing she throw a big shi! Show. Slamming doors, screaming at the top of her voice, putting her fists up, it was so bad our neighbors called the police. We live in an apartment we have been confronted by our landlord because of her tantrums. She has smoked pot in our house when we came home her and her friends were in her bedroom....she doesn’t care if she is caught...have found her boyfriend in our home when she was told not to bring him here...stole money...stole household stuff. Constantly lies about being at friends’ houses overnight ...calls us terrible names....disrespects us. And is running wild and thinks we should be following her house rules... she’s told you are grounded. She just screams calls us names and leaves. We don’t hear from her for three days. Then she calls to meet at the mall to give her food money ...clothes ...just when she wants something. We have no idea where she is...she comes home on her terms...just to eat and shower...then won’t stay home ....the cops can’t find her ...we have no resource....if anyone here can give us tips or suggestions would appreciate it. She won’t go to counseling we tried.
