This is the first time I kicked out my difficult child daughter. I'm new at this. At first she called to come home - was staying with a boy. This boy was actually trying to convince her to come home. She lied to him so he threw her out. Now she has another boyfriend. She was on myspace yesterday and posted that she was living with him now (so I am told). I put her work uniform on the front porch the other day, I refused to let her come in the house to get it, with a note to please call and check in so I know she is okay. It has been 3 days and I'm heartsick. Prior to that she was checking in daily. I'm dying to call the boyfriend's parents' house (the number was on my caller id when she called me from there last week). Should I? I called once last week and she screamed at me not to call that number. This is torture. I know in my heart that I have to teach her a lesson but it is so painful. I just want her home. Reading all the posts really helps me not to feel alone in this. I guess what is really bothering me is not hearing from her. We are actually very close in a weird way. sigh.
