How would you handle a teenager like this:
Cuts herself
Says really mean things for no reason
Puts holes in walls
Sneaks out and leaves her phone at home
Won't come home for days at a time
Always gets kicked out of school
Does drugs
Has sex
Drinks
Basically does whatever she wants when she wants.
Even if you ground her she will just leave anyways. Or sneaks out of school.

This kid has been diagnosed with depression and sever anxiety but won't take pills.

I honestly don't have an answer, my teenager does not act like that. But if she did I would prob get arrested for beating her ass and I know that is not the correct answer, so good luck.

Lol... not laughing at your situation, but as a teen this was me minus the cutting. Honestly call the police take her to juvenile detention and request a one year placement. Look up boys and girls town. The only thing that is going to work is her not being able to leave such as a placement. She will get counseling, therapy, be forced to take her meds etc. Please heed my advice. If you have any questions please message me.

Therapy and if she won't take that seriously, then boot camp.

I would think that this is a seriously hurt child who needs immediate help. Who hurt her this deeply?
