Help me please. I just discovered that my daughter - whom I've been very hard on about her studies and school - has rumors flying around about her that caused her boyfriend of 1and1/2 years to break it off with her. It is rumored that she had sex with 3 boys while she was seeing him. I knew she was doing a lot of flirting, but I thought it was only on the phone. I spoke with her about it at the time warning her of this very thing and to protect her reputation at all costs. Her boyfriend has kept talking to her - some think this is cruel and he's just keeping her dangling. I heard them today when they didn't know it though. He is heartbroken and says he loves her so. But he can't be with her now. He needs time and space. He spent some time this afternoon with her. she is only 151/2! Is this a sign of depression - that she would need to do this??? She has always been someone who was never satisfied with what she had always wanting more more clothes more electronics more boys (it seems) even though she is crazy about her exboyfriend and is more upset than I've ever seen her. I have an appt with a counselor because she has become so angry and out of control. Do I need more than that? A psychiatrist? I have so much guilt that I may have damaged her self esteem and contributed to this behavior. I have always told her how much I love her, given her everything - rewards of material things but also praise when she's done well but I have also been critical and honest about her behavior - maybe too much????? She has started missing alot of school and does not seem to care. I am worried to death that she will continue the poor choices with boys - seeing what she's doing as their loving her. Please help.
