Need advice please. My sd is almost 17 (in 4 months). She was held back so won't graduate till she's 19. We've had custody since she was 13. Her mom is unstable and in and out of picture. I cannot live with my sd anymore! She spreads very vicious lies and gossip about us, is mean to my 4 younger kids, she steals from all of us. She treats me like dog crap and I just can't take it anymore, dh agrees. I called her mom and asked if she would take her ( I feel horrible about that but like I said, wits end, please don't bash) Her mom doesn't even want to deal with her drama! She said her home is peaceful and she doesn't know if she wants to deal with sd. I told her, you're her mom, she needs you! She takes all her anger for her mom out on me even though I've been a part of her life since she was a tiny girl. She is basically abusive to me. Idk what to do please help. Her dad is to the point he just wants to kick her out. We lovingly told her, if you can't obey our rules, you cannot live here...Please Bump!! Love ya cafemoms!

Counceling. That's the only thing that I can suggest. Hugs to you!

Well you can't legally kick her out. Since you've tried counseling, I agree with a previous poster about boot camp.
