    To Nootz who's from Az. You love your daughter and you want, whats best for her. So you gave her a tast of freedom. But the problems is you gave her too much. A laptop cellphone etc.. She's controlling you. Enough is enough you are the parent. When she dosen't listen, take away the things she loves and dont feel bad. Make her do her homework, read a book for an hour. Then give her some previleges using the labtop and cellphone usage. If she still acts up tell her your cutting off the cell phone and getting rid of the labtop untill she knows how to behave and give you the respect you deserve..

    I have a daughter who has been given everything. cellphone, labtop, pretty much anything she wants. It seems to never be enough and she treats me with such anger and hurtfulness that i get angry and want to slap her. then the words go ahead i will call the cops comes up. But if they heard the way she talks to me they would wonder why i haven't beaten her butt sooner. what do i do to gain the respect and love that I deserve and give to her all the time until she doesn't get her way? so confused and sad. She doesn't want to learn at school she has all the anwsers yet she is in special ed.help

    Find her and force her to come home. You're well within your legal rights to find your daughter and take her home if she isn't emancipated. Back in the day when I tried to run away, my parents came out and dragged my butt back home and I didn't do that no more. To review: Find her. Get her. Bring her home. Lock the darn doors. disconnect the phones and break her cell phone (i'm serious, destroy it). Make sure she's well cared for and stuff. If she tries to go back to the boy (whom I'm assuming is a man of my age or higher), call the police on him.

    My 16 year old is pregnant, living house to house, and even though we're communicating as soon as I ask her to come home she hangs up. Her reasoning is are rules are unfair...rules like graduate high school get a job to have spending money over and beyond what we do for her. her baby's "daddy" is an alcholic felon and I would love to know what i can do to get her home until she's 18? We don't abuse her we just set realistic rules.
