My DD is 18 and still technically in school. She is failing and at this stage only rarely going to school. We have been in therapy together since November. She is rude and calls me names when hubby is not around, but the other children are. She doesn't come home for days at a time and I never know when she walks out the door if she is going to come home.
She has admitted to our counselor that she is "burning bridges" with me and she doesn't care. She has chosen her "new" friends (that she has only known for about a month) over her family. As far as I know she is not taking drugs...but I do feel it is only a matter of time some of these friends do.
I want her to stay with us so she doesn't have any "excuses" (she can't blame us) for not graduating. But with her not going to school what is the point. Open to suggestions and thoughts...thanks.
