Please note, after years of providing free advice, I now require a donation (the amount is up to you) prior to answering your question. Questions from parents who are noticing changes in their adolescent and think problems may be brewing, questions regarding specific problems they are already experiencing, information on warning signs if they think their child may be having problems, questions regarding fighting with parents, sibling rivalry, school problems, addiction problems, relationship issues (eg their child is in a relationship and parent has concerns), and anything else you can think of.
22+ years working with an adolescent population providing counselling. I have probably worked with over 1000 clients in that time. Have been used to testify in court and write reports for sentencing.

HI Sarah, one of the things you can do is to let child protection know your side of the story. They always take that into great consideration. It does sound like she has crossed the line of "typical"
