I am remarried, and my husband and I have been having trouble with my 17 year old daughter who has been disrespectful, rude and manipulative. It's like walking on eggshells with her. She decided on her own that she was going to live with my sister. She has been with us the past month through the holidays,but has come to the point where we had to ask her to go back to my sisters because its gotten so bad. She now is using the guilt trip on me because she says I chose my husband over her and that isn't true at all. I don't want to be in a position of choosing. I've even have gone as far as putting my schooling on hold to attend counseling together but she isn't willing. I'm at a loss on what else to do, any suggestions?

Still others experiment with alcohol, tobacco or drugs. So how can you tell the difference between normal teen rebellion versus dangerous behavior? And what's the best way for a parent to respond?

Outbursts, rages, and strife become a way of life (an emotionally unhealthy way of life). We set aside our own needs and focus on the needs of our children. But what does it cost us?

The Strong-Willed Out-of-Control Teen

The standard disciplinary techniques that are recommended for “typical” teenagers do not take into account the many issues facing teens with serious behavioral problems. Disrespect, anger, violent rages, self-injury, running away from home, school failure, hanging-out with the wrong crowd, drug abuse, theft, and legal problems are just some of the behaviors that parents of defiant teens will have to learn to control.
