I have reason to believe that my daughter who is 20 and in college is experimenting with alcohol and marijuana. She used to be open to me about everything and since she has been hanging out with a new group of friends who I don't approve of,she has been secretive and often lies of her whereabouts. I am about to resort to drug testing her but this might just strain our relationship furthermore. She tells me to trust her and the choices she makes, to leave her alone and treat her as an adult. In my heart, I know I raised her right, I hope this is just a phase that she is going through. Should I just take a step back and trust that she will eventually make the right choices? Scared and heartbroken.
