My daughter is really getting out of control. About a month ago I found out she had unprotected sex, had a night out with drinking, and just suspended for fighting but luckly she wasn't pregnant and I just recently just got her on the birthcontrol shot. I'm afraid that something else worse is about to happen to her. Now I keep her home but she has this attitude that won't let up to me and my husband you is her stepdad. I was just wanting to know if anyone else has had this semilar cituation? And what helped you guys out.Answer Question

Welcome to my world. My daughter is now 18 but at age 14 was having sex, I took her to the doctor she got on the pill and a lecture from her doctor about STDS. Shes the child who knows it all, very strong willed and has a nasty attitude. She has been suspended for fighting she was actually put on probation for the fight since the parents of the other child pressed charges. At 15 she started to sneakout of the house, smoke pot, ditch school. I would call the police to turn her in for ditching, nothing was ever done. I would punish her she would run away. I got her into counselling, rehab, nothing helped. I got myself a good therapistand once I learned to not feed into her drama, and my husband and I got on the same page in parenting things got better. Unfortunitally she is still a nightmare! But I did create it.

When my son gets that attitude his dad tells him quick, move out while you still know everything. If the out of control behavior continues I would strip her room of everything but the bed and the dresser and take the door off the hinges, (privacy is a privilege) and make her earn everything back.

Hi. I just signed up for a class called "Active Parenting of Teens" that is offered in a school district near my home. I interviewed the instructor for a story that I posted on my Web site and decided right then and there that I need the class! There is a book by the same name - Active Parenting of Teens. Here is a link to the story I posted on my site: http://suchasmartmom.com/category/smart-kids/sk-high-school/ I seriously learned so much from this woman in an hour-long conversation. As she said - we're the responsible adults who need to work on changes in order to get along with our kids. There are strategies that work. Best advice: Don't take things personally. Good luck. Ruth
