Put yourself in this situation, your child is 16 christmas they got in trouble for purchasing illegal substance and is at the alt. skool.

at the alternative school for sexual conduct severall times on school property and skipping school several times.... child is in teen court and has done community service.... what would you do?

The best thing you can do is love her unconditionally and be there as a parent, not a friend, to help her. You don't say what controlled substance was found and that in itself can tell you a lot of what's going on with her. Locking anyone up is never the answer unless they are dangerous to society or themselves. Locking someone up is just sending them to a school for higher education as a criminal. Love her and tell her you do & pray for her...eventually she will calm down.

I would put my child in a room with someone he or she really likes so maybe I could get some answers to why my child is doing this and try to solve the problem

Follow the advice of the people at the alternative school. If he keeps breaking the law, perhaps he could go into a group home. In 2 years he will be 18. Try to have a good relationship with him and love him as best you can. Allow him to see the impact of his behaviour on you.

Sorry, I've never heard this name before. I thought it was a boy because of the sexual misconduct part. Since the social rules most people understand and live by are not for you, and since you are truant, go your own way and don't bring any more grief and humiliation into your parents home. You will be free and your parents will be free of you.
