I have an SD that has been considering coming to live with us. She hates her step-father. She is forced to watch her siblings when her mother goes to work and the step-father is home watching tv. He takes her phone and goes through all her messages(I think that should only be done by her bio-parents). He torments her about boys (she doesn't even seem interested in them at the moment). Her mother is a complete Bitch, putting it nicely! But how do we know if her life is really as miserable as she makes it out to be? She told DH that she wants tome come here after 8th grade, because all her friends are going to a different HS. But, if she's THAT miserable, why would she want to stay another year? I understand that it's scary going to a new school and make new friends, but what happens when a year goes by and she chickens out? I'm so tired of DH & I wasting energy worrying about her if it's just a game to her?
