Looking for Parenting Tip
Daughter (14) snuck out of the house the other night to spend the night alone with two boys her age. This coming after she's been cutting herself, stealing from her siblings, vaping excessively, and lying to us the whole time (3+ years).

I am unbelievably pissed. Wife thinks I'm being too harsh and that we need to empathize so she doesn't do anything drastic to permanently harm herself.

Thoughts?

We've tried therapy and Lexapro. She's been resistant.

Go on Dr. Phil, pray she says a clever catch phrase that kids will repeat for years and becomes a millionaire.

re: Looking for Parenting Tip
Is it wife or ex wife? I’m genuinely curious, this sounds identical to what a coworker is going through with his 14yr old daughter. She’s been in short term facilities and meds but nothing has worked

Yeah, she's had a rough life. Her biological father is a paranoid schizophrenic who's been in and out of prison and rehab her entire life.

Your wife is in denial. Seek help ASAP.
Otherwise it will tear you apart.

Well what have you done to make your wife think this? You haven’t told us what you’ve done.
