At 17 she assaulted me and vandalized our home. I pressed charges and she spent 3 weeks in Juvenile Detention and 4 months in a Detention Group Home. She moved in with her boyfriend at 18...it did not work out and we took her back. Big mistake. She is defiant and one day we called the police and he said in front of her "you need to support her since she is still in high school and you better work it out with her". Now she rules the house!! However, we called our local police station and the officer said the cop was wrong... we can evict her since she is legally an adult. She is in the 12th grade and is failing and her guidance counselor said she can repeat the 12th grade. We are afraid if we call the cops again for abuse and violence and they agree with the first cop, then we have no leverage at all. Or if we go to court, they will say Counseling. Did it for 2 years with her...did not work.
Emotional abuse! Help!
