UGH. That is some big drama. It worries me, too, that she doesn't seem to take it seriously. Life is not a game and it can be screwed up pretty quickly when you make bad decisions.


It sounds like D. is doing the right thing -- immediate consequences. I hope she has time to think about her actions and really consider what she wants her future to look like. Unfortunately, though, sometimes people only learn by making the big mistake and having to live through the results. I will pray that's not the case for her!

My cousin is going through this exact situation with his 16yo daughter - sneaking out, hanging out with older boys, getting in trouble... He and her mom are divorced and DD16 has been trying to play them against each other -- with no luck. (However, it did lead to my cousin and his second wife getting divorced.) My cousin is standing his ground like D.

Teenagers!

Hugs to you. I also think you are doing the best possible thing -- just being there for D. That's what he needs right now.


AJ, enjoying life with C.
