I called the cops on my teen dd 2 times today update
We called theu talked to her; she didn't meet the criteria to be baker acted. She wa calm and collected while the cops were here. They gave her a stern talking to and left.
After they left she started again saying she was going to kill herself and said she was going to run away and we told her leave this street we will report you as a runaway. She did. Dh called again. By time the cops got her she had came back. He talked to her again and at this point he is seeing how difficult she is. He gave me the number to the sheriffs youth ranch. I called them. I just got the call back for an assessment. I will get a call back tomorrow to see if she meets the criteria.
I hope so. This place is used to get children help before they get completely out of control. I am at my wits end. She will receive canceling there and family canceling. It will be short term facility. She will live there short term. It isn't a mental hospital it is for at risk teens. She has been hospitalized 2 times and it didn't help any. She already receives therapy as it is.
this place is to get them in control before it is to late.
It is getting bad with her. I have found messages where she was planning on sneaking out with a boy. Talking to oldet boys. I am at the point I want mental health treatment to deal with the stress. Her behavior is impacting our whole family and if we don't do something now it will only get worse. She is 14
Fyi, I know my Grammar is bad but bear with me. My nerves are shot
the sheriff youth ranch they are calling the this one new beginnings called back. She will have a bed available Thursday. She will go Thursday. She'll be there 2 weeks. The first 3 days they will have her under 24 hour watch. If she is on good behavior they csn earn outings to do community work. It seems good program. I hope it works...
