I am not really a new member, but I changed my name and started over to protect my daughter's identity. We had trouble with our daughter when she was in elementary school, but things had straightened out for the most part. Unfortunately, I recently found out she is doing drugs. I really think, based on all of the evidence, that it is a new development. However, she doesn't seem likely to stop. I have always thought, based on her ODD childhood, that if she didn't want to do drugs, no one would be able to talk her into it. On the other hand, if she did want to, I always felt, no one would be able to talk her out of it. She has said online that she wants to do drugs and live a hardcore party life. I found some LSD in her room, so I know this is not just talk. And, we aren't just talking about weed and alcohol, though that would be bad enough. She will be 18 in a few months. I know we can't just lock her up in her room, but how do you let your teen go out when you know this is what they have in mind? Any advice from parents who are further along in this than I am? It is hard to know what to do that has a chance of stopping this potential train wreck, without making things worse. So far, she has been mostly accepting of the fact that we are not letting her drive and has not left the house without our permission, but she is starting to get that defiant attitude about it. We live in an area with no public transportation and pretty far from her friends. If I didn't know about this, it would seem her life is pretty on track. She has a job and gets decent grades in AP classes. She is applying to some competitive colleges and will probably get some scholarships. I am obviously distraught over the thought of her throwing that all away.
