My teen has not responded well to issues dealing with alcohol, sex, and drugs during her teen years. She has tried so hard to be the most “popular” girl in school, meaning that she has gone to multiple parties, acted recklessly, and has gone against many of my wishes. She has tried marijuana and alcohol, and has even gotten a tattoo with her boyfriend. In response to this, I have warned her that these behaviors are dangerous, but that I am only concerned for her well- being and would rather have her be honest with me than strictly punish her. She has also started to date someone for two months, and my partner and I have been worried about the relationship, especially because Madeline has claimed that she is in love with this boy. I am nervous that she may be having sexual relations with this young man.
