Hi, my name is Brenda, and I am new on this circle of moms thing. I have a 14 year old daughter who is hanging with the wrong crowd (my opinion of course) and she doesn't seem to care that her actions can/will have consequences. She is probably gonna get a visit from the sheriff tomorrow at school cuz her and a few friends are texting a girl and being threatening. When I talk to her about it, she smirks and doesn't seem to care. I told her that she could even get arrested if the police and school think that this is serious enough and warrants that kind of discipline. She said, "So, how long will they keep me a day, or week!" I just can't believe the lack of, shoot I don't even know what. Does anyone have any feedback on how I might talk, handle, approach, this with my daughter. I am almost at my wits end. I just don't know what to say or do to get her to understand this kind of behavior is WRONG! Thank you for your input and I look forward to hearing any suggestions.
