Hi, I'm new. I'm sure alot of you have thought about kicking your *ahem* difficult child's out. Well...if mine is a difficult child, I think God has a SICK twisted idea of a gift. I am at the point where I dont want anything to do with her. I want her to move away and not come home until she can pull her head out of her *** and behave. *sigh* wow, that feels better. Alright, so My daughter has ODD. I have been around ALOT of kids and teenagers, and I have never in my LIFE seen any as destructive and deliberately hurtful as mine. I am at my wits end and LITERALLY, about to sign my custody rights over to the state and say...good luck.She's 16 years old, and flat out refuses to follow the house rules. The rules are simple, no friends on weeknights, GO to school, and clean up after yourself. Thats it. I do not think I am being unreasonable in this...and instead, she brings friends over in the middle of the night, and when I hear them and get up to tell them to go home, she either lies to me and says they dont have anywhere to go, or she starts screaming, waking the rest of the household up and going on about how I dont give a bleep about anything but myself and i never let her do what she wants. I tell her, dear, these are the house rules, and thats all there is to it. I will then leave the area because I am not going to sit and let her scream obscenities in my ear all night. I will come down an hour later and her friends are still here, so I will open the door and ask them again to leave. They leave usually without much trouble, but she will throw things and scream hysterically. This is an every day occurence when shes home. On days when shes not home, shewill call me at midnight and sometimes later, demanding to be taken to so and so's house because shes forgotten her makeup bag or her shirt. I tell her absolutely not. I have school or work the next day, her 6 year old brother is sleeping, and its far too late to be driving across town to fetch her forgotten things. (Forgetting things is another common occurence,) When she forgets something, which happens about 4 to 5 times a week, if I dont take her immediately, she pulls the same routine of shouting that I dont care about her and that she should just jump in front of the train or that she hates my bleeping guts...im such a witch etc. I can't do this anymore. i cant i cant i cant. I looked into treatment programs, but I only make enough to scrape by. I cant afford the hundreds or thousands of dollars that these groups charge to "help". Going into serious debt isnt going to help anyone. Does anyone know of another option for help?
