My rules a clear - no dating guys out of school until you are out of school. My 17 yr old went behind my back & started dating a guy of 21 who works & has his own apartment. She started bunking school & this guy would fetch her from school & drop her off at home at the time she was supposed to arrive home on the bus. She was caught out & considering I had never met the guy before, I banned him from the house & from seeing her. the school asked me to take her to a psychiatrist who then said she was severely depressed & needed to go to a psychiatric hospital to be treated for severe depression. Once she got there, things changed drastically. She refuses to see me & has now informed me she does not want to come home. I found out yesterday that this "boyfriend" is in the hospital too as a patient & they were caught kissing, which is against the rules. She then cut herself. Her father & I are divorced & he maintains she is there because of me. She refuses to do any of the therapy treatments & is constantly lying to all of us. A year ago she was the sweetest person I knew, now she has turned into a monster. Her brother and sister are so angry with her behaviour, they don't want to see her. My husband does not want her back in the house. What do I do?
