I have a 17 yr old stepdaughter. She has lived with her grandparents till last July. They called her father out of the blue and said they couldnt handle her and wanted us to come get her. She seemed to do good at first. I did what i could to make her feel at home. Here is the scoop. I went on my computer, she happened to leave her email open. On it there was a twitter post. It was about pot use. So I opened it up and didnt think it was really her. Well in this post she stated how she couldnt wait to get paid so she could buy a new "piece", how she got so drunk and stoned on New Years, How her "dad is a stupid asshole and obviously I do what I want". and I lost my virginity at 16 but I dont feel any different. I read this all at 5:30 in the morning and about lost it. I went up and grabbed my husband and said look at this. I didnt think it was her until I saw a picture of our living room table and our cat. So we went to her room and of course she denied everything saying it is just a fake twitter account and it is all fake. Well we took away her phone, and all social media related items. (This was on Sunday) So Monday night she needed to do a project for school so I let her use my computer. I figured she would just do what she was supposed to. So this morning I wake up and check the history. Low and behold she immediatly went on facebook. So what in the world do we do. We keep catching her in lies and we inform her on what that does. She is trying to play us like some fools. So do I A: Keep her phone, take away my computer, keep making her take the bus too and from school, give her a drug test. or B: Give her everything back and tell her we disapprove of her behavior and her choices are her choices and she can deal with the consequences. I will house her and there will be food in the fridge. Our doors are locked at 10:30, if you can get your truck down our drive way so be it, if not take the school bus and you can hire a taxi to bring you to and from work. you are responsible for your cars upkeep and insurance,If you want to date your boyfriend that is heading to prision for narcotics, pot, and DUI, then go right ahead. So I am just in tears. Any Ideas??
