Step-daughter spiraling downward...
I have a 12 year old step-daughter. This year she is in 6th grade. She has missed 26 days of school, refused to hand in homework, skips the bus home therefor is not home to watch her younger brother, spends all her time on her cell phone, skips sports practices, misses games, fakes she's sick to stay home because she is avoiding detention...and all this is when she is with her mom. When she is with her dad and me, she is not allowed to pull these tricks. When dad reaches out to mom about her allowing these negative actions, she becomes irrate and says she doesn't have time for this. Our hands are tied and we have no idea where to turn or what to do.
What can we do? I'm fearful my step-daughter is going to hit rock bottom.
