I read your story and it really hit home/youre in my prayers. Just continue to trust in God and he will bring you through to your joy. Just remember that as hard as it is/try to find it in your heart to forgive. I know its hard/I'm still trying to forgive now.View Thread
Yes, you did the right thing and that police officer doesnt sound correct. He is 18 and unless he is paying any bills you have the right to permanently excuse him from the household if you feel he is a threat to your family and he has stolen from you $200. Get him out of your house and practice tough love.View Thread
Well as I don't condone what she said to you, it may be a reaction as she feels betrayed. Though she should not have lied she may feel that the one time she confided in you and did tell you the truth she was punished by getting the phone taken away. Coming out to a parent is the one of the hardest things to do, maybe you should try to re-explain why you took the phone away and let her know that her speaking to you like that is unacceptable but you were not punishing her for opening up to you, only because she was dishonest.View Thread
Honestly, you need to practice tough love. If she does not want to be appreciative for the home and love that you have shown her, then you need to show her what life is like without it. Maybe that will make her appreciate life more. Although her behavior could be her frustration in the grieving process, that does not give her the right to tear apart and mistreat you and your home. She needs to understand that if she has signed herself up as an adult at school, she can be treated like one as well.View Thread
