Beautiful, Rebellious and Always Running Away
Jennifer says her 15-year-old daughter, Marie, is completely out of control, refuses to go to school, and is constantly running away. She says, at one point, her daughter was so disrespectful that she had to send her to live with her grandmother, Vicki, because she was too much for her to handle. Jennifer says she recently lost her job of four years because she was constantly having to keep an eye on Marie. Jennifer says she fears Marie’s actions will lead to her living on the streets, jail, or even worse, dead. Jennifer’s oldest daughter, Carly, says she’s distraught over Marie’s attitude and how it affects their mother. She says Jennifer cries daily and her stress levels are through the roof. Is Marie just a “bad teen,” or is she crying out through rebellion for attention?
