Hi Everyone, First - let me apologize for only coming here to vent and not checking in with y'all regularly. I have chronic headaches and try to stay off the computer for any lengthy periods. Also, I actually do read updates here from time to time on my phone. My daughter is a full-blown difficult child now. Last Tuesday, we got a phone call from the h.s. that she had stolen $51 fro the school business office and was caught on camera. Instead of sending her to juvenile detention, they released her to us and suggested we check her into a hospital. I did that and had to spend close to 6 hours at night dealing with the process. Am I sinful for feeling relieved for a break from her? She lied and said she was suicidal to go there instead of juvi. At the same time, I feel sick to my stomach over other people finding out where she is. We have already lost one child back to the state 2 yrd. ago over endangering her and us. Not many people know the details. Now I feel judged everytime she messes up. I feel like a total failure as a parent. Another thing, I feel sinful for thinking "3.5 more yrs. and we won't be legally responsible for her anymore". Please tell me I'm not the only one who's felt this way. I'm tired and ready for this to all be over. I feel like I wasted my youth on these kids because they refuse to change and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
