My 14 year old keeps drawing on her clothes, shoes, also the latest using a pin to scratch a heart and the initials of a boy she currently likes into her hand and then going over it with marker ( i guess her idea of tatoo's) . She also asked for secod ear piercing to which I said no and she pierced her ear herself. I made her take it out but low and behold going to school the other day she had sneakily put it back in. She is secretive and difficult. I know we all gave our own parents a little hell but I get so frustrated about her destroying new clothes and always having ink on her body! Am I over- reacting - I fight this battle along with the inappropriate texting one.Answer Question

First off find out if she has other problems. Talk to your doctor and get an appointment with a counselor. From there if she is just being a brat. Take away everything,but her mattress and one weeks clothes. then she had to do chores. Like laundry and mending her clothes.

discontinue the texting option on her phone... call the service provider and have them turn it off. I did that - I know it can be done. only buy her cheap or used clothing until she stops. perhaps family counseling.
