divorcing the family

I went through the same situation with my daughter when she was 16. I  taught her about 'Tough Love'.  I told her if she didn't like it here to leave, but, if she went and got picked up by the State Police she would have to go to juvenile hall, then a judge would decide where she would live.  I was a single mom, trying to bring her up. She also used to cut classes at school. Shaved her head, moved out for about 2 months, (finally came home), then I took her to her family dr. and she diagnosed with ODD (oppositional defiant disorder).  It was tough through those years, but anything I threatened her with, I followed through with.  It took about 4yrs, of counseling, and battles with her and her friends, but we finally got through it.  (now has been an elementary teacher for 6 yrs)
