My 12 yo has been difficult since birth, the past 2 yrs it has been a living hell. She has been seeing a psychologist for 2 yrs. I have tried every partenting strategy I could find or have recimmended to me. Nothing has ever even made a slight improvement. So far this past 6 mo have been the worst. She constantly is in trouble at home, the school calls at least twice a week. I have tried stripping them of all material posessions for them to earn back to the other extreme of loving her well, didnt work. I love this child with all my heart but I am tired of this. I have checked on boot camps etc. they want $1200/mo, we cant afford that. I also have a 14yo daughter & 7yo son who has to suffer because of her actions & my bad moods I try to not take it out on them but its hard to instantly change my moods to pleasant. If you know of places they can go for maybe 30 days at low or no cost please help. We are in WV.Answer Question

First to the anonymous user, I didnt "make her that way" she chooses daily to be that way! To everyone else, we have been doing the in depth counseling for 2 years, 2 times in the past 2 months she has been in the adolescent crisis unit. I do appreciate all answers and will try any I have yet to try. I also have a daughter 14 and a son 7, who seems to be normal for their age, not angels at all but more of what i expect a14 & 7 yo to be.
