She didn’t go to school and sometimes came home alone early in the morning.
My 44-year-old daughter is divorced. She couldn’t control her and asked me for her help. I am 67.
I know my granddaughter had a hard time when her parents divorced and she was bullied at school.
We were afraid that she would eventually become pregnant or run into trouble with the police.
You sent me the Troubled Teens support pack and offered to talk to Family Lives (familylives.org.uk) for advice.
They were very helpful.
You also gave my granddaughter advice on how to talk without talking. She made sure her granddaughter felt like she was being treated like an adult.
She opened up a little to me and I was able to explain how upset and worried her mother and I were.
She promised to be more thoughtful and thoughtful about her actions.
All issues will be answered individually, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.
Things are slowly getting better.
DEIDRE says: It seems to have touched a nerve and the situation seems to be more positive.
I hope they keep improving.
