Does your niece live with you?

If not, is her dad open to advice from you? Just wondering, because some parents, family or not, might be resentful of getting unasked for advice.

Do you have a close relationship with your niece?

If you do, have you tried sitting down and talking with her, to try to find out why she's been acting that way? I'd tell her that you love her and are concerned about her behavior, and see what she has to say.

My advice is file a FINS petition against her, and she will have to go in front of a judge and explain why she is acting that way.

I don't think as an aunt there is anything you can do. It's really up to her parents to work with her to make changes.

Honestly I am having the same problem. My 15 year old daughter does not like going to school. And she will demand not going. Punishments ill try taking phone away and she will fight me and my parents. She's in counceling now and honestly don't think that is helping as well. Now the dr recommends a phsycologist. Now a days seems like more teens or worse than before to me. Swearing ect. No respect

I'd have her parents call the police.  They have programs at the juvenile detention center that she can be forced to take part in.  Here, if they miss too many days of school they go to juvie.  Maybe a reality check is what she needs.

Talk to her parents and maybe get her into a scared straight program...

Tell her parents to check with CPS and find out what they HAVE to make sure she has. Then I would advise them to take everything else.

I got a hold of CPS when I had kids to find out. Mine know, CPS says they have to have a mattress (not a box spring or frame), they have to have one set of sheets and enough blankets to be warm. They say the kids have to have 3 sets of clothes and the ability to wash said clothes.  They have to have one pair of shoes. They have to have access to 3 meals a day. Meals of MY choosing, not theirs. 

And, my kids know, act like an ass enough and the CPS basics is what they will end up with!
