So last night I get a call from difficult child at 1130pm. She says she has been drinking at a party and the cops were called so I have to come pick her up. I am pi$$ed. First of all she lied to me about where she was going to be. She was supposed to be spending the night with a close friend of her friend. That is something I normally wouldn't approve but since I trusted the friend I decided to let her go. Second she was driving to the party and she took two other girls with her. Both of which were underage as well. Third she proceeded to run her mouth after I picked her up and refused to shut up the whole way home. I barely spoke to her because (1) I know it is useless to talk to someone who is drunk (2) I was furious and would not have made good decisions myself. Plus she was blowing everything way out of porportion acting like I was going to ground her for 8 months. Fourth she proceeded to basically lie to me the entire way home. According to her version she drank 1 drink and took a single sip of beer. There is no way that is true considering she has been throwing up for the last 4 hours. Fifth she apparently thinks that because she was a responsible drunk who handed over her keys and helped the mom pick up the bottles that should count for something towards her good behavior. When we got home I messaged her dad on Facebook and made him call her ASAP. She proceeded to lose her cool with him and he lost his cool in return. I guess he called her back later after he had his temper under control and they had a good talk. He sent me a message saying he was taking her car for 30 days and grounding her to the house for 3 weeks. I suggested he remove her cell phone priveleges as well considering one of her reasons for needing to "go have some fun" is that her boyfriend dumped her on twitter and that his friends were harassing her again. Every time she gets in a fight with the boyfriend she winds up making stupid decisions like choking herself or driving while extremely upset. I think having a hiatus from the boyfriend and his friends constant bull $hit online and via text will be good for her. difficult child proceeded to go ballistic on her father because of the cell phone restriction so he hung up on her. So I just had her line suspended after her dad informed her of the punishment. She is already messaging me via Facebook threatening to run away. ARGH!!! What should I do? I called her therapist and got his voicemail. I can call the police if she runs. What else can do?
