I am not sure on what to do with my 13th year old daughter. She has been stealing, lying, manipulating everyone and going agents all rules we have set in our household. They are just you standard rules. She lives with us full time and her mom only want her when she needs her. When my SD goes to her moms and gets in trouble over there or with us, her mom just plays it off like no big deal and tries to be her friend so now my SD wants to live over there. The thing is that when my husband, BM and Step dad had a meeting a few months ago to discuss keeping things consistent for her BM said she did not want her daughter to be over there more than her time in which is two days out of the month. She then just recently changed it to having her daughter more and then threatens us if we had plans and she does not get her way. I can only imagen how stressful this can be for my SD since one minute her mom wants to spend time with her then the next she does not. When talking to my SD she always has something bad to say on what goes on at her mom’s but then I know she does the same when she talks to her mom. Its hard to believe anything that comes out of her mouth. My husband and I are running out of ideas on what to do. We have grounded her, token her phone and computer away. She is not allowed to watch TV until she is ungrounded and she still keeps doing the things she got ground for. She tells her friends how much she hates us and that we are not good people but we do anything and ever thing for her and I just wish she could see that and not pull the negative out of everything.
Any advice would be greatly appreciative.
