My daughter who is almost 18 has given us a great amount of anxiety and stress since she was 14. At 14 she got involved in a big way with a chrisitian club, at 15 I had the police out looking for her on a number of occasions. Also her Dad got arrested that year after she accused him of hitting her during a row. He did not, as I was there, but he ended up in court. She has left home twice, because of rows and not wanting to follow any house rules. She is back home now and in a relationship with a boy of 19. After a special family gathering yesterday, her boyfriend decided to go home, instead of staying at ours. She got upset about this, and would not settle. We arrived home from a surprised birthday do for her cousin at 12pm. However, I saw my daughter walking up the road in the pitch black at 2.10am to meet a friend. I was worried sick for her safety and this morning noticed she had not come back. I am so worried that one day the police will be on the doorstep to tell me she's been raped or murdered. I am sick with worry with at her reckless behaviour and don't know what to do. HELP !
