I have a 17 year old daughter that went to jail yesterday. She has a temper & insisted that I call the police. She gets really mad when she feels guilty or gets a no.
She was verbally abusive & busted her lamp. She threatened to bust her window if we didn't call the police. They arrested her for damaging property.
She went to adult jail.
She has called several times but I have a block on my phone for telemarketers. I called to get it taken off but it is not instant. I assume she thinks I won't accept the call.
I adopted her when she was six & I am pretty sure she is getting through to her birth mother. I also am pretty sure she is babying her.
I am having a really hard time with this. I am hoping this will help her in the long run but is really hard. I have tried to teach her that she can't damage things when she is mad. She thinks anything goes as long as she is angry.
I don't think I can even afford to get her out.
