I have a question...
My daughter is clinically depressed and a self-abuser (cutting and purging) with all emotional/mental problems that come with it PLUS the normal teenage girl issues.
Now, my fiance is very insistant on disciplining her as you would ay teenager... take phone, ipod, internet AND ground her to her room, no friends, no playdates. Work, school, home...THAT'S IT!! Because as a teenager she will manipulate and use the "depression" card to the best of her ability.
Me? Although I do agree to a certain agree but I also know that being the way she is, I CANNOT ground her as EVERY other girl. She has special needs...so to speak. I have come up with a solution, ground her same as above HOWEVER, I have allowed her 1hr of phone and internet each night of her grounding along with if she feels anxious she can walk around the parkinglot.
Who's right? Wrong? Any opinions would be appreiated.
