[Trigger] I have a 14 year old daughter who has decided that she would rather live with her father where she can do as she pleases with no rules. To do this she has decided to say she will kill herself if she has to live with me. She has been in a hospital twice and they say she is depressed, but she shows no sighs of depression when she is at home with me. They have put her on prozac and she goes to therapy twice a week. What do I do? Do I let her get her way so she stops saying this and take the chance that she might end up pregnant or on drugs.HELPView Thread
[Trigger] The talk of suicide started before the medication. She was put in the hospital because of the statement and thats when they put her on Wellbutron and now this time they changed it to Prozac. Her father and I don't get along, he was abusive and I have a hard time with it still. When we do talk about rules and structure he says "girls will be girls and they need their freedom." So we will never see eye to eye on the rules. It really bothers me when she visits him, because he lets her run around with 20 yr guys. I have custody and until he takes me back to court she can't live where she chooses, but am I making her depression worse by keeping her with me, even though she only wants to live with him so she can do what she wantsView Thread
