my 16year old daughter is now preganant and my mother and grandmother has contridicted every attempt ive made to keep her away from from boys/men...if i take her cell phone away,they bought her another...when i tell her that she can't go off with her friends(because i know she is lying)they will tell her yes. Now she is pregnant and i have two other kids ages 9 and 5. Should i leave that in their hands too,because she doesnt respect me at all anymore or value my opinion.

I had to cut ties with my father and sister for a few years when my son was a baby. They did not respect my decision not to give him cough medicine which made him bang his head on the floor. It was so bad they tried to take him from me, I moved away from them and completely cut off a relationship with them for 4 years. I know it sounds extreme but now we are all close again and now they respect my decisions as his parent.
