She is 13 and is rebelling against my rules.
I'm trying to get rid of her and make a new one but I'd like to hear some other ideas.

Sometimes I hope some of the things people actually write on these threads is just made up bullsh!t to get a rise out of some people. But then I have to think that there really are people like that out there. Just thank God I don't know any of them personally.

If this is for real, I agree with PF ... yes give her up for foster care and then you need to give up on parenting because why would you think the next child would be so much different?

Don't you know you have another 5 years on that lease? She's only 13. She hasn't begun to rebel yet! LOL What you do, is let her have whatever she wants. Then on her 18th birthday get her a set of matching luggage. Packed. From then on, she's on her own. She should really know how to handle life after that. Since it sounds like you're doing a bang up job there, parent. Even better, let her get pregnant, and she can carry your child/grandchild. Oh what fun you'll have!
Sorry I don't support incest. And I can't wait 5 more years! She's very rude, talks to boys, doesn't come straight home after school and when I confront her she tell me to mind my business , yesterday she came home at 4:30 pm, school gets out at 3:45, and its 15 minutes away . When I asked her where she was she said I was overreacting but I don't thinl so. I grounded her but its like I didn't do anything she refuses to give me the ipad and galaxy3 that I boiught her and its like wtf who do you think you are but what can I do?
Should I take her to the pilice station and turn her in?

You should absolutely send her to foster care and not "make a new one"! Begatting has long-term responsibilities and many folks just aren't cracked up for the rigors of parenting! You might be one of those folks!:)

Sounds to me like you are lucky that she even came home. Give her a little space and benefit of the doubt and it will make your life and hers a lot better. Lighten up. Take her and turn her in or give her up??? are you crazy? Why would you want another one, does not sound like you could do that job.

Give her space?? Its 2013 !! There are bombs going off, people are getting mugged, kidnapped, raped!! There are drugs and alcohol and gangsters out there, idk where your from but I don't want my kid exposed to that nonsense. If she wants friends she should make a myspace or she should text or something.

Okay now you just sound paranoid. myspace or text?? are you kidding, that is not reality, so you dont want her to deal with the real world is what you dont want. Eventually she will want to interact with "real people" and unless you give her space, you will never know what she is doing. She will lie to you because otherwise, you wont let her do anything...Give her respect and space and you will always know where your children are. Hiding from reality does not solve problems, it makes more.

Ohmafuggengawd. Seriously. What is wrong with you that you would be willing to give your daughter up over something so small as teenage rebellion? Were you not a teen once? Did you not rebel?

Geesh. I agree with everyone else, give her up for HER sake and then go get yourself sterilized.

Fekken quitter. Maybe someday someone will give up on you too. Then you'll know how it feels.

I'd be rebelling, too. You buy her things like an iPad and Galaxy, set unreasonable rules, show no apparent interest in her activities, then seem shocked that she wants to rebel. Thirty minutes after school with friends isn't out of line. At least she knows who they are. You'd rather her social life be online, where any predator can try to gain her trust? Try being a real parent for a change. Get her involved in school activities, and be one of the parents who actually participates. She's acting out to get your attention. Give her the right kind and you might be surprised, continue with the unreasonable rules and restrictions and you'll get more of the same. Sadly, she'll be the one paying the price for your bad parenting.

Here's an interesting point for you, if you can't handle the first one, you're not going to be able to handle the second one.

Not all kids are the same. That's an enourmous flaw in your logic.

I don't think the real question or issue should be how different each child is and they are all different, you're right. But what Do you plan to do that is so different with the next child? No child is going to be a perfect or obey your every command. All children are going to develop their own minds and want to experiment things on their own. You as a parent have to know how to handle these situations when they come up. Easy? God no. But if you don't develop some sort of discipline and structure skills as a parent, you are going to lose the battle. Each child Is different but All children are going to rebel some. Some more than others, sure, but that is just part of it. You and your child both should see a counselor.

It is the toughest job on the planet. Some people are not up for the challenge. Ask yourself if you think you are.
