As you are in the US you can contact hotline.org they are in every state with contact details and will walk you through the legal steps to help your girl. Some of this is normal teen behaviour - they are like toddlers, defensive, screaming, refusing, then the hormones. You and your younger children are being physically and mentally abused. If you can get trauma counselling for yourself first and the kids you will get off those horrible eggshells. Sometimes our teens need tough love and learn through their own mistakes to become adults. Have a look at the developing teenage brain at this young age it isn't developed much past a toddler. I hope this helps a lot. Women and domestic violence is also a website that should help you. You are brave you can do this big decisions cause horrible guilt. breathe, cry and breathe. And don't forget you are a fantastic mum and very strong.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
