Doesnt do anything but sleep when she gets home from school......
I dont even know where to begin.....
We moved from Ga. to Va. the summer before 8th grade. She started 9th this year. She's made "fast friends" The ones who's parents dont really care about what their kids do and just let them do whatever.
Her dad lives in Ga. and when we moved to Va. he almost completely cut contact. He makes her feel bad about moving to Va. with me and not staying in Ga. with him.
She's always been in gifted classes and then AP classes till this year. She has no motivation in school. Just coasts by with minimal effort. She could do so much more!
She has a boyfriend that she is completely focused on at all times!! He is 16 and she is just about to turn 15 next week. He just got kicked out of his house and was forced to go live with his mom. So he's not in the same school anymore and since I dont let her "date" and we dont allow boys over to the house they dont see each other at all now. I most certainly do NOT approve of this relationship. Oh yea, he already has a suspended license. Im trying to talk to her and wake her up to realize he is not on the right path at all and why the hell does she want this???
But my issue at this moment is how much she wants to sleep!!! All she does when she comes home from school is sleep! .... till its time to eat dinner then eats, takes a shower and goes back to her room. She complains of headaches all the time. I took her to the dr. they gave her an antibiotic for a sinus infection and said if the headaches arent better in 2 weeks to go see a neurologist for migraines.
There is very minimal family interaction. She has a baby brother and a 4 year old sister. I have to take her phone away and make her interact with the family in the evenings. She lives and breathes by that damn phone!!!!!
Im just frustrated. I am so worried about her and dont really know what to do.
How much does your teen sleep?
