  • I'm sure you love your daughter but you need a home, I would say turn her in... years later she will understand.

  • I'm sorry all these bad things have happened in your life.Mine recently stole $800 from me.It made me really angry.I guess just follow your gut feelings on what to do about it.

  • Yes I understand... it happened to us very recently. We confronted our 18 year old daughter and she returned almost all back and let her keep some as she asked for some as she needed it. We told her that she has to choose to return the money or we will have to report to the police as it is crime. We need to have tough love with our children and they will thank us eventually.
