I must be crazy....

to think that I could handle a teenager. Long story short, the foster child we have is someone I've known for many many years. She's 15 and extreamly rebellious. "No" just isn't a answer she will accept. She is VERY mature for her age and is so very smart. She has potential to go places but no desire. I understand she is only 15 though and i dont expect her to know exactly what her plans for the future or anything. But i swear she is doing everything in her power to screw up everything were trying to help her do! I love her but I don't know if I can do this anymore. I'm really not sure how much information I can share so I'm sorry this is vague. I just need to vent.

So sorry.

I'm sure she has a rough past that has certainly played into her behavior. It helps to know that, but doesn't make it easier to deal with!

Do you think there is attachment disorder issues? Or maybe ODD? Or is it just typical rebellious teenager stuff and her acting out to figure out your boundaries?
