Parents Support One Another @ MyOutOfControlTeen.com/support = I need help with the following issue:
Here's my dilemma. My daughter will get angry and not answer her phone even when she knows I have an urgent issue to discuss with her.
Likewise, she is a poor driver and has a couple of tickets and accidents-no injury. She must pay for the additional cost in insurance to continue driving but does not yet have a job (she's 17), so she has to use her car to job hunt as we live a ways from town.
The car and the phone are the only things she really cares about, but if I take them away, I have no means of communication and she can not look for a job, and/or I have to drive her everywhere. I am single and have to be out of town for a couple of days from time to time as well. Suggestions?
