Hi omegabruh,

I'm sorry you are disappointed in the response you received on the board. You are dealing with a very serious situation and I think it can be hard to offer advice unless you've experienced it for yourself. I think the ladies that replied to you had some really good words of advice to share and I agree with them that your daughter needs some professional help.

I wanted to share a link with you to another board here on iVillage.

You got 37 replies in August. We wrote you novels. It appears you didn't do ANYTHING we suggested. What more do you want?

BTW, if what you want is a paint-by-numbers plan on how to rid yourself of your step-child, whom you are legally and morally responsible for, the one YOU, YOURSELF described this way...

My DD has emotion issues, anxiety issues.

I've come here for advice regarding my ds who is 17, and the ladies are always kind and helpful. My ds is an addict and has been in trouble with the law more than once, he is also a high school drop out. The best advice I can offer you is to find a local support group in your area, where you can share your worries, concerns with other parents/family members who are going through the same exact issues.

Best wishes to you.

Ya know, or probably you don't because you don't know me, but THIS post really chaps my ass. Why? Because I find it to be insinuating that those of us that responded to you from the heart with EXPERIENCE are being brushed aside in favor of the "247" that didn't respond to your previous post with something you want to hear. There were 3 of us within 24 hours, not 2- and YOU come back EIGHT DAYS LATER with this (quoted from previous post on same subject):

"Thanks for the great advice.

I always figure, it's really easy to say "my kid will NEVER..." when one's child is under the age of the action in question... in this case, talking about a 2 y/o who will never stay out all night at 16.

Some of us who frequent this board may feel that we have nothing of consequence to add to the advice you have been given already.

The situation with your step-daughter is very serious. This young girl needs professional help.

i don't answer posts that I don't have anything helpful or at least encouraging to say. Sorry to disappoint you, but I am not going post on something that I have no knowlege or experience.
