My teenage daughter decided she wanted to move out with her boyfriend however she is burning the bridges home, her bf is alienating her from us and she doesn't see it. We were not the perfect family and we were not without problems however we did everything in our power to make up for it. She now tries to rub that in our faces every opportunity she gets if she stands to gain pitty from someone else. She has no regard for people she is hurting. What do I do?

If she is under 18 you have rights as a parent..or is it 16?..not sure..pretty much, when they are older teens you cannot control them..the more u run after her, teh more she will play you. I'd pack her suitcase for her and send her on her way. Tell her you love her without too much emotion. Give her some ideas of what is likely to happen to her but wish her well. Unfortunately, there comes a time where we cannot make choices for our kids. It's sad and i wish you good luck. My sisters husband also took her from our family while he and she were still at school. They had a premature marriage, were not ready for kids and their lives have been struggles from then on. Their whole family has been affected from a premature decision. It's important that your daughter be told to keep her wits about her and to know that the fellow she is with is not the only fish i the pond. Pray for her as well. She has soul karma to work through and you have to let that happen. ALSO ..i wouldn't make up for anything..she needs sto realise that people are human and make mistakes and that on one has the perfect family. Let her go and do things for yourself. She is going out the door and keeping you tied to her with her guilt trip. Cut the chord and let her experience her 'ideal' boyfriend.
