I am a young mom (had my daughter @ 17)
Now my daughter is almost 15 years old. Early last year she was caught "sexting" (no images, language only) with one boy; cell phone was taken away.
2 months after, I had to pick her up from her school dance as she was caught kissing another boy. She was grounded the entire summer. End of summer, I find out that while staying at her grandmother's house (my mother), she was still seeing and talking to this boy WITH my mother's permission; they kept it a secret from me!
Just earlier this week, I discovered that she has another "boyfriend" who she met in our church Youth Ministry group, she has been using a cell phone that my MOTHER provided to her behind my back, and she's been texting and Facebooking from this phone.
On top of all this, she lies not just to be able to get away with things, but she makes up stories for the sake of getting attention.
I have had numerous conversations with her about honesty, self-respect, self-love, respect for others, and most importantly embracing who she is and not pretending to be someone she isn't, all to no avail.
Short of cutting off the relationship between my mother and my daughter, I don't know what else to do to stop this. I am heartbroken. Am I alone?

I think you need to talk to your mother she is definitely encouraging this behavior & if your daughter has someone that's willing to help her hide it she will continue to do it no matter what you say.
