I've had a rough ride with my only daughter, whom I've never thought would rebel...I'm a single mother of three two boys 22, 19 and my daughter 14... And I went wrong somewhere and I can't figure it out... I just know the i will always be there for my daughter. Even though I know I've done everything I can to possibly install great values in my daughter its just with the Internet and peer pressure it's more thAn kids can handle nowadays but that's when you as a parent have to have hands down on situations and document everything so when times come you are prepared to give account of what your rules were and everything your child did that was against your rules... They become responsible for all their actions... But you as the parent have to lay the rules down.... As a young teen that said its the parents fault I this site, so what true take everything they can't live without for example my daughter lives for Facebook. I no longer have her a phone but she happen to get her hands on one., even though my rules say she is not allowed to have one....she continues to break all rules even not coming home sometimes but all this is reported to the courts.... We have court coming up in a few days. I love my daughter and I never want to hurt her but she knows it all right now so I let her be she will sneak out the window at night because she bows I will never leave any hour of the night not while I'm alive so she stuck with being immature and sneaking out the window.... Yes terrifying but I believe in the almighty Lord Jesus Christ and he is guiding me, though it's hard.... I do my part as a parent , single mother... But I do t let they label stop me because I'm young and strong and I will continue to give it my all... I have no pity for my self.... I'm doing the best that I know... And the rest u leave it to God! My daughter has court this Thursday and I will make sure the judge knows I've put I. 100% and everything my daughter has done then will ask the judge that my 14yr old puts herself in danger when she disobeys my rules , example by not coming home and thinking she can do what she wants without asking for permission.. I really hope the judge has a great option... I will update you... I have court on Thursday....."
