step-daughter that has a chip on her shoulder. her real mom lives in another state.
just not sure what to do for this kid other than suggest therapy/counseling. she is miserable, hanging out with the wrong crowd, already drinking/smoking/bored...yet never wants to do a school sport. half assed about anyting; finding a part-time job/ school work, never contributes unless pushed to do something at home.
any suggestions? my husband has even lost hope. i think gave her too much freedom and not enough discipline all these years has finally caught up!
