This doesn't relate to horses, but I know how difficult teens can be, and how hard it is to control the situation. My middle daughter was a very good little girl, til she turned 14, and then she just went wild, got involved with a 17 year old boy, who was wild and from a very dysfunctional family. He began beating her on a regular basis, but she would run right back to him. I would try my best to discipline her, but she would call the cops, saying I was beating her, which was a lie. I would try grounding her, that didn't work, the cops said, if she didn't want to be grounded, no one could make her!!! LOL! The boyfriend set my house on fire, and went to prison. She was pregnant, had her baby, and we are very close now. She is now married with 4 kids. Sometimes, they just need to grow up. My heart goes out to all of you, because I have BEEN THERE!!!
