We have a 16 yr old daughter who is a model student and excels at school and most activities she pursues. Out of school she lies, steals, manipulates and is putting herself in increasingly dangerous situations. She is unwilling to help out at home unless she is after something and is abusive towards the rest of the family. She sneaks out for sex, threatens her brother and myself and just recently had an unsupervised out of control party when we were out of town for a night. She left a note to say "sorry and I tried to clean up" and was off to netball practise!! We came home to find our property in a disgusting state - belongings had been deliberately smashed, property stolen, our beds used, food thown all over the lawn, vomit and filth throughout the house. She has shown no remorse and says it's only a big deal to 40 year old parents. She refuses to go to counselling and says it's all our fault because we're such bad parents. We can't understand what we've done wrong - our younger son is a polite, respectful and kind child. We worry about the impact our daughter's behavious is having on him. People outside of our family would find it hard to believe I'm writing about our daughter - it's like she has two different personalities.

I am new to this group and feel so alone sometimes. I have two sons in the prison system, due to drugs mainly heroin. I have three children and who in the world has two boys this happens to? I question every day, my parenting skills, I am an educator so I know better. Their dad has also used, after our divorce. I honestly, don't know how this will get better, prison system is not right....
