yes she lied about her inappropriate relationship w her "girlfriend". 14 is too young to be having sex period, male or female. She lost all of her privileges. That's all fine and well... Just one problem with that. Me and my husband are hostages in our own home. You can't send a 14 year old to daycare! I'm resentful and of course the horrible mother and I really don't care! So should me and my spouse just suck it up for privacy or send her to a military camp? I'm sick of not getting alone time w my spouse and so is he.

We get it. You're trying everything you can think of.
If you'll re-read Sherry's post, she's not saying you're incorrect in your punishment of your daughter, but you are now resenting her for a lack of privacy with your spouse, which is a direct result, it seems of your punishment.
In my home, we don't have that problem. When we want privacy, we simply tell the kid that we're having our own time. I get that you don't feel you have that option, but you can't show your kid resentment for a punishment that you have assigned, but isn't working out the way you planned.

Really Sherry? When she has been hospitalized for cutting, burning and a suicide attempt. It would be irresponsible as a parent to NOT to do those things. I cannot leave her alone w her constant talk of suicidal thoughts. We take her to the best counselor and physciatric in the state. Guess what? They ALL say the same thing. "Get a healthy group of friends and just start moving to get out of your head." In six MONTHES she has not. I've done and will continue to do my part while I wait for HER to do her part. So far nothin.
1. Girlfriends mothers boyfriend is sexually inappropriate.
2. Saying she is going to take pictures in the neighborhood and comes back with her hands burned.
3. Not participating in groups w her own kind and just trash talking them after.
4,5,6,7 and 8 I won't even list.
So if I'm overwhelmed and having to stop my life and vent on a post don't be so quick to judge my right to literally keep MY kid alive.

You can't have a child, take away all her privileges, keep her cooped up at home 24/7 and then get angry at HER because you aren't getting enough alone time with your spouse. I'm sure she feels like quite the hostage too. My advice is to quit resenting her for taking punishment that you doled out for something she did. She might have previously been in the wrong, but now you are.
