All good advise. She has been suspended from school until mid November. She can't go back to that school because it's school of choice. She can't go to her district school until her sentence has been completed so she is going to do online classes AND do every chore I can think of.

That helps a lot actually. I made her run all the errands with me, make dinner and cleaned the kids tv room, her room and bathroom until all was spotless! No internet,phone,tv or radio. She is in her room reading a book and tomorrow I am going to pick up a book about what happens to a person when they do drugs and have her write a report about it. Also this week I am adding having her write a report about her older brothers diagnoses of being autistic because she is totally mean to him. Maybe it would help her understand what he goes through inside and make her understand how hard it must be to have those challenges. What do you think?

Well, lets see. TOTAL LOCKDOWN. You drive her to and from school, you make her adhere to any and all court imposed punishments.

If the courts didn't impose community service, I recommend that you find some for her. Make sure the school is aware of the activity, so that they can watch for violations at school.

Get her in counseling, find out WHY she decided to experiment with drugs at that age, and find her more constructive ways to spend her time. Extracurricular activites, sports, things to redirect her attention.

Well I've been through the ringer on this one my nephew was really really bad into drugs not just weed he is now in jail has been for 6 years now went in at 18 years old got out recently and surprise surprise he didn't even make ir 3 weeks nanda he's back in jail.. So what I'm getting at is it seemed like my sister turned her back on him at a young age he moved in with my mom(his grandma) my sis was real hard on him too hard i think personally but it does depend on the child.. I would recommend personally start by talking awsy all outside communication for 2 weeks.. Cell phone lap top any Internet communication just cut it off and no matter what don't cave and give into hee and give it back no matter what a lining hell she might make ur life at the moment.. Just start taking away every thing that means the most to her my kids it's their phone Internet social video games that's what I always do first my 11 yr old it's his xbox my 13 it's his phone Mt 17 it's her phone and car.. But when she was in 6 th grade I took away all her designer clothes and bought her very plain stuff from Walmart because vi did not like Cher attitude when we were at the mall one day.. She was looking at this girl about her age abd said Omg look at what she's wearing that's hideous i cane unglued i said to her u r so rude in stead of opening ur trap why don't vu think about that poor girl maybe her family don't have the money for designer clothes maybe she climes what she's wearing whatever it is instead of talking crap on her put urself in her place it's not ur job to judge her then i took away her science camp mandatory trip for 6th graders cuz i wouldn't cave on her clothes she was real mouthy to me abd said I'll be do glad when I'm at science camp cuz I'll be away from u.. Not she didn't go buy yet I sent her to s hook snyway when her whole class was at science camp anyhow hope this helps the bottom line is this ALWAYS UNDERSTAND ANY CIRcumstsnces always follow-through on what u say and they will definately respect u mire as they get older welll most of them anyways.. Hope it's helpful goodnight
