My daughter turned 16 in February, and while we have hit bumps in the road here and there throughout her life, our relationship (or so I thought) was always VERY close and loving. Within the last month or so, things have just rapidly declined to awful. She lies to me constantly about almost everything, gets home late, and is being very rude. Now, she started dating a boy who is almost 18 at about the same time that the problems started, so I assume there is some connection. I am just at a complete loss (and totally emotionally drained) on how to deal with all of this. I have tried punishments, I have tried compromise, nothing seems to get through to her anymore! I'm a single mom and this is all so challenging. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
