I sure wish I would have listened to my parents when I was 16. I did everything my parents told me not to do. I got pregnant at age 16 with my boyfriend. Although, I am now 20, still with him and we also have 2 kids now, I regret not listening to them.
to teen daughter, I find it okay you stay with your boyfriend, just be careful. Having a baby at a young age is hard. I love my kids, just regret who I had them with.
seeing that you went ahead and had 2 with him feeling that way, you may have a learning disability. but you will probably end up leaving him and then calling him a deadbeat dad for it.

Well my advice would be nooooo! Don't let this happen unless you know 100 percent nothing is going to happen. I know how i was when i was 16 and i wish i could have waited longer...don;t get me wrong i love my baby but i wish i would have lived my life before i got pregnant.

I wasn't assuming anything about the daughter...I was merely sharing my experience. Of course there were girls who were morally stronger than I was. I caved and gave in because "everyone else was doin' it" and now I'm paying for it. Just trying to offer some perspective from someone who's been in that situation.

Kids should obey their reasonable and sane parents. Parents should bring kids up in the way they should go. When one or the other is out of balance, then you have problems.
If she refuses to follow your demands, have her arrested. Incorrigibility. Some time in juvie will change her tune, bad or better.
If that's not an option for you and she still takes off, check into having the other party(ies) arrested for harboring a runaway teen.
If that's no good for you, emancipate her. Set her free. Cut her off. If she wants to live like an adult then dammit force her into the accountabilities that most adults live by. I can think of no more severe punishment. She'll quickly learn that sweet sweet love ain't nothing like she thought it would be.
I raised two girls and had my own share of sh!t with them. Happy to say they ended up turning out very well.
All of your advice may sound wonderful, but did you stop to think about what the teenage daughter is going thru at home, and why she wants to stay at the boyfriend's house? I know a situation that this sounds like and the mother's live in boyfriend is a useless drug addict that has never worked, cheats on the woman he lives with and has children with other women. He will not pay child support, yet this woman upholds him in everything he does. He verbally and physically abuses all of her children as well. Her teenage daughter has been allowed to do as she pleases, so she will not be a bother to her and her boyfriend. But in the public eye, she wants people to think she is such an upstanding mother and her teenaged daughter is making unheard of requests. This whole situation is out of control, so find out the facts, before you start downgrading the child.

Its called raise ur kids right from the start and make them respect u then they will respect u when they r older if ppl would still bust there kids az$ there would be a lot less crime drugs and teen pregnanceys ...i got whip when i was a kid and my daughter gets whipped she needs it i love her with everything in me but if she needs dicaplenned she gets it
A 16 year old girl is a little old for a whipping. So lets see how stupid you sound here. If I am 5 and I am bad then my parent whips me?? This teaches me that when I don't like what someone does that I should hit them. Hitting is violence. So you believe in teaching your child to be violent? Yeah thats much better then teaching them to reason and be level headed to solve problems. Lets teach them to hit other ppl when they make us mad. YOU DON'T LOVE UR CHILD if you are hitting them. I talk to my children, they have a brain and human beings are the only mammal that can reason. Fear does not equal respect. Respect is earned. Your parents whipped you and you whip your child therefore equalling a cycle of abuse....not love.
yep you are

OH but rather I am most certainly a PROUD parent of not one, not two, not three.....but FOUR wonderful children. Two of which are grown adults now and have made me VERY PROUD, no teen pregnancy EVER, and my children are NOT on drugs, ARE NOT violent and ARE NOT jail birds. They have morals and values that I instilled in them as I raised them as a single parent. YES...I KNOW the "secret" to parenting...it is talking and being patient with your children...not hitting and whipping. MY children were NEVER and ARE NOT afraid to tell me anything. They even tell me things sometimes I wish I didn't know also, but they are open and I LISTEN to them. Communication, patience, and being open minded...being a friend as well as a parent...that's the key to raising a child that will make you proud.

well you were very fortunate, if your telling truth. either way i dont care wether you are. but not everybodies kids are the same and that easy to raise. when i was a kid i knew of a few idiots that were a few years younger than me that never got their ass beat. and they were so bad they needed beat to death. i still know of them today, in and out of jail and strung out on drugs.

Yes lorinda abrams i would agree that she acts 13. But you have to think about how you raised christina! It is not her fault. You are addicted to pain pills and so is she. I dont blame her!
