Parents Support One Another @ MyOutOfControlTeen.com/support = I need help with the following issue:
My granddaughter is before the juvenile courts next week for drunk and disorderly in public place and assaulting a policewoman. When I went to pick her up at the police station she was so drunk she could not stand up. I took her home that night but did not say much because of the state she was in. I just hugged her and made her warm and cosy in bed. But when I went out of the room she swallowed some pills and I took her to emergency at the hospital. She was hospitalised for two days but was fine to leave. I grounded her until her court case came up in a weeks time. The police said she was hanging out with much older boys who were really dangerous lot. Last night when she was at her mothers place she got out the bedroom window and went to a party. She walked all on her own into town found some friends and went to the party. When we found out we went out looking for her. We were just about to give up when we found two of her 14 yrs. old friend walking home from the party she was at. This was at 2 am. They both had alcohol on their breath. When we found my granddaughter she refused to come home at first but she was so drunk that it was easy to get her in the car. She threatened to kill herself that night. This morning we asked her step father to take her out for a few days out of town and she kicked holes in the wall. We have already taken her mobile and ipod. What else and were do we go now. We have tried a psychologist and counselling and she treats it like a big joke. She has always been a sweet lovely girl and is small for her age and dresses very provocatively. i feel she is in high risk category but am exhausted with trying to find a solution.
