Hello all, I can't tell you my relief when I found this board tonight. I have a soon to be 16 year old daughter, she's the eldest of 4. We've had ongoing issues, and she has a paed, psych and is now attending CAMHS. They've given multiple diagnosis, medicated her for them, and then taken back the diagnosis MULTIPLE times. Currently she's sitting on a diagnosis of PTSD complex, but previously we have had bipolar, ADHD, BPD, depression, anxiety. She had a serious addiction to social media, and lived an extremely fake life on there, full of lies, and messaging multiple boys declaring her love for them. We removed access to social media apps on her phone, yet she would steal devices in the house to get her fix, and go back to the same behaviour of declaring her love to anyone who would say hello. We've now blocked social media using our modem, across ALL devices. We know she still gets her fix using friends phones at school. She is constantly violent to her younger siblings. Whether a shove or a slap, she will deny it. She never does anything. We produce her with video footage taken from the house cameras, and she will change the story to how they were annoying her. Often in these videos, they're just walking past. It is nearly always an attack from behind. She steals food, and random small objects from everyone in the home. The smallest most ridiculous things, but still, they belong to someone else..She will then write her name on them and claim it was always hers. She is a victim in every story she tells. Never takes responsibility for anything. I have repeatedly been in touch with all the workers involved in her life, and really feel liKe the system isnt set up to help the family at all. I've done a triple p parenting course, I have contacted the school counsellors. She's up to her 8th high school. She creates so much drama, and is such a victim, they've become unsafe for her and she's had to move, on recommendation. Tonight, I am at my wits end. Her sibling screamed out in pain. She denied doing anything. Footage showed her hitting sibling from behind. She now says, sibling bounced past her and it annoyed her. Whether sibling bounced or not, she had no right to hit, but video shows there was no bouncing. Go into her room to discuss expectations regarding violence in our home, and she's propped up on the bed, no remorse, writing a dozen love letters, presumably to send by carrier pigeon? I want my other children to feel safe, and know that it's not acceptable for her to hit them. I just don't know how to go about that.
