daughter growing up too fast

Janet - posted on 03/21/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter is 11 but looks 15 or possibly 16 she is by all accounts quite mature for her age but her recent behaviour frightens the life out of me.
There have been several instances where she has gone out and I haven't know who or where she was.Have grounded her for short periods,tried to explain my concerns but she keeps repeating this.
Sometimes she answers her phone and sometimes not.Once I was so worried I went to the police.Even a stern talking to by a police officer didn't make that much difference.
I am a single working mother so although I often take her to school I can't pick her up or keep track of her whereabouts after school.I know she thinks I am worrying too much but I feel she is at risk .
Any strategies it thoughts would be very grateful

So there is not another adult you trust that can pick her up from school in the afternoon? Is there not a Boys and Girls club or something similar she can go to after school?

What kinds of behavior are you talking about?
