i need help with my 13 year old daugther. she is smoking, stealing from me and stores, lying lying bout anything, she is very defiant towards me , very abusive, she will not do anything i ask her with threats of strong punishment,she said lastnite when she got caught that she's tired of me trying to run her life. she runs away and yells and hollers at me when she gets caught in her mess. i need a financial -aid acceptance program that will acept her into a reform school or long term boot camp.

Do you follow through on the threats of punishment? If so, and she still doesn't do as she's told, then you haven't found the right punishment to get her to pay attention. Take away everything... phone, tv, electronics, games, everything she cares about. Remove the door from her room. Tell her she has to earn these things back. Search her room for cigarettes or other stuff she shouldn't have and throw them out every time you find them. Don't give in to her. She is legally your responsibility until she's 18. She doesn't need privacy. She doesn't need entertainment. She doesn't need anything except food and shelter until she proves she is responsible enough to have her privileges back.
