Hi I also have a 16 year old daughter who started being aggressive and violent a couple of times now, the second time is last night. I have been up all night trying to find any information to help us deal with her. She has anxiety and depression for two years now. She was seeing a psychologist for a year and a half but stopped three months ago because she refused to attend. She says she doesn’t want to talk to anyone. She used to say that she only tells the psychiatrist what she knows the psychiatrist wants to hear. She has a boyfriend of just over a month that makes her happy and that she can talk to. Lately she keeps making excuses to stay out later and later. We have tried to be supportive but she doesn’t listen when we ask her to come home at a certain time. We explained it’s for her safety and when it’s a school night. We tried to take her phone when she’s aggressive and swearing but then she would get angry, start hitting and calling me names. My husband had enough last night after she was verbally and physically abusive towards me and warned her that if she’s late coming home again she’s not allowed inside the house. I’m torn because I’m worried what will happen to her but I know we have to put our foot down.
