My 14yr old hasn't been doing school work. I've been on her about it, it got to a point where I grounded her from her phone, tv, and video games for the rest of the year. The issue has been going on for months, with her lying nonstop until I find out the truth. She's also in therapy due to emotional issues from her dad being a deadbeat. I told her therapist she's still having issues with missing work, so to take the heat off of her, she tells her therapist that I threatened to sl*t her throat. Later I'm told I also threatened to not feed her for 2 months if she doesn't get me a certain xmas gift. I don't know what to make of this or to do until her next appt. I pray it's just a phase, but I had a talk with her about how her lies could destroy our family. Anyone else ever deal with this?
