She took off over a week ago deciding that she did not want to be home, she also doesn't go to school. We have spoken to police who say that she is not a runaway because she stays in touch. She has come home a couple times, and we've talked and laid down the rules, but if we leave the room, she is gone. She has broken in to change, eat and shower, as we changed the locks and lock it up while at work and have told her that the door will be open until 10pm then it is locked. The school is going to call a meeting regarding her truancy and we will be fined. We did get wind of her whereabouts one morning and my husband pulled, dragged and threw her into the school office and said here is my daughter now she's yours. She was gone as soon as break came. Her activities during the away time are "I'm having fun". And all that goes with that. The boy that she is with is not yet 18, so they are not "technically" breaking the law.. I have looked into all areas of where we could "send" her but do not have that kind of money. I would love to send her somewhere, any ideas that are somewhat cost friendly? And it isn't anywhere here, she will not go or participate in anything... I have tried it all... I really love the idea of her being "taken in the middle of the night to a boot camp in the middle of nowhere..." but where is she in the middle of the night??!!
