I have a 15 year old daughter that is very defiant.
She is rude, disrespectful, failing all her classes in school, her friends are bad friends that are into cutting class and smoking and drinking.
I have her in a program that is for children with behavior issues. That is not even helping because she ended up dating a girl that is in the program so she is on the verge of getting kicked out of the program.
She is cutting classes and getting written up all the time now, she is not doing homework, and she is very manipulative and is a big liar.
She comes off as such a sweet child and yes that she is as long as you do not correct when she is wrong, catch her in a lie or so forth. Once that occurs you are on her bad side.She will curse you out and try to provoke you to fight her and ahh!
She has stopped doing chores at home, is not showering, she just turns on the water and lets it run.
Me and my husband try talking to her which is not her dad but pretty much is because he has been in her life for 7 straight years. We have even tried to get other family members to talk to her nad no use. This is her 3rd program and still the same results and she is getting worse each day!
Which is also causing a big toll on my household because I have two younger children one other daughter that is 8 and a son that is 5 years old. They see the confusion with her and I see that my 8 year old is now trying to copy off of her nad I have to let her know that it is not cool what her sister is doing and so forth.
Does anyone know what I can do? I am located in New Jersey if anyone knows of something!!
