My daughter was 16 years old, and very violent. She would get mad at me for telling her to put her dirty dishes in the sink, or telling her to clean her room. When she got mad, she'd throw things at me, hit me, call me names, tell me how weak and pathetic I am, etc.... One day, the last day she lived with me, she punched my husband, her step father almost every times (he just stood there and took it). He walked her to the door to get her to cool down on the front porch. She was outside and my husband tried to close thedoor. His hand was between the door jam and the metal door, and my daughter slammed it over and over until there was blood all over from his hand. I took him to the ER and they recommended stitches, but he opted for lots of butterfly bandages.
This ALL happened in front of my son who was 3 years old at the time.
I called her father and had him pick her up. He was living with his parents at the time as his 3rd wife kicked him out. Since then she has been in a little bit of therapy (her father insists he knows best, and insists that he'll take her to appointments, but rarely does). She has had several (at least 10) similar angry, violent outbursts with her father, his parents, several other people she's lived with. People get tired of walking on eggshells around her and her violent behavior, and they kick her out. The last time was yesterday.
She was staying at one of her friend's homes. This home has no hot water. I offered for her to stay at my mom's house because my mother was widowed in June 2015, and is very lonely, and is disabled with MS and Alzeimershe (sp?). They got into a very heated argument, and my daughter just up and left. She's in 12th grade, and her father is an over-the-road truck driver. He has her doing cyber school online, but she can't do it if she doesn't have an Internet signal. She now is going to live with him in his tractor trailer. His wife refuses to let my daughter live with her because she gets so violent.
For the safety of my 2 son's (5 years old and 5 months old) and my 3 year old granddaughter, I can't let her live with me. She's been kicked out of most of my family's homes. I feel like a horrible mother because I won't take her back, and she's living in a tractor trailer, and probably won't graduate high school, but I have to keep the rest of my family safe. This is so difficult!
