I started giving my daughter advice on all aspects of life as soon as she turned 12. I speak to her about, drugs, alochol, sex, the basic facts of life...etc. Inspite of all the good advice, and talks I have with her, she seem to defy everything I say.
From last year, her behaviour seemed to have changed drastically.
Eg. I told her smoking is a bad habit and is not good for her . I walked into her bedroom unannounced and saw her smoking. I found empty beer and alcohol bottles..in her closet. From a straight A student, she is now failing hopelessly at school. I am so worries as this her final year at school. She is now rebellious, rude and arrogant. I found out that she has a boyfriend, and invites him over when we are not home. She tells lies and more lies to cover it up. I sat her down and spoke to her about this behaviour, and told her it is not acceptable, and how this behaviour will impact her future life, and tarnish her good name.
Lo and behold...it was like i was speaking to the brick wall...
