Hi im new
I hope im posting this in the right place..
I have a teenage daughter who is 13. I am a lone parent and have brought her up on my own. Since last summer she has been getting more and more difficult to manage.
In the last few weeks I found out she has been smoking and drinking. Also I caught her stealing from my purse (which I had suspected for quite some time.) She lied to me about a sleepover arrangement. She was missing for hours found her out on the streets with a gang of older kids she is not allowed to even speak to.
I confiscated her mobile phone and grounded her. She has spent the last 2 weeks smashing the house up kicking and punching me refusing to go to school (on and off) Her rages last for hours she follows me from room to room screaming and shouting. I feel I am at the the point of having a breakdown from the stress. I am also worried that I will snap and beat her.
I have spoken to social services (last week) and am waiting for them to call me back with a view to helping us.
I just need words of comfort and advice has anyone been through similar circumstances?...How I have got through tonight I do not know.. Im not even sure if this makes sense im so wrecked from it all..
Thanks for reading
