Help! My daughters behaviour and attitude has been steadily getting worse over the past year (she's 13) But lately she's been coming out with a new one, she wants to be taken into care because she hates us. The latest episode was this morning after having her mobile taken away for being rude to her mum, she then said "well I'm not coming home from school" and "phone social services I hate you" She apparently has a friend that's either in care or living with an adoptive family and she seems to think it sounds great. We just feel at our whits end with the daily bombardment usually after she's told no.
It's scary, isn't it Just? I was desperate to get SS involved with ds1 when he was running away at 13/14, smoking a lot of dope and spending a lot of time in the local drugdealer's house.
The only "help" SS offered was a bed for him in an adult homeless hostel where heroin use and prostitution was rife. And when I pushed them, they suggested taking ds2 into care - he was 8 at the time - because ds1 was violent
