Opinions advice needed regarding SD17 Behavior
SD was this sweet nice Polite thing till she hit middle school. Then like overnight she turned into this Hateful disrespectful nasty little bitch. BM is half the problem as she Bails SD out of trouble And makes excuses for her crappy Behavior. DH was not much better till I gave him holy hell about SD and he put his foot down with SD. Well that did not go over well. SD has refused to come back after that (mostly because of me and I’m fine with that) and BM has taken SD’s side.
I know teens can be Difficult but this seems so extreme. SD in her 4 years of high school Has had over 50 detentions,2 Suspensions, and over 200 Unexcused tardy’s. She has been caught stealing at school and has Swore at teachers more than once. The most Recent calling a teacher a bitch. Again this is someone who is almost 18. Her grades are so poor it’s Unlikely she will graduate with her class and will have to either repeat the grade or do summer school. She has no skills and never had any kind of a job.
Im sure BM will be supporting her for Quite sometime as she has no job.
What would cause a kid to just flip from one Personality(sweet) to the complete opposite(nasty)? Is there a chance SD could flip back to being a decent Human being in a few years? Is there a age that things get better? If not what can I expect down the road when she’s 20? 30? SD has been in Therapy for multiple years with different therapists but none seem to help.
