she only went about once a month because her mother forced her but it made absolutely no difference at all.
today she left school before the last period. I did find her and at first was angry. apparently she ditched school because she wanted a cigarette . i hesitated to go home because i knew she'd jsut go to her room and we'd be cold towards each other. so i just drove and drove. TBH she had that many chances to jump out of the car when i stopped at lights or intersections but she didn't. we talked we yelled we were sarcastic with each other. in the end i said look, we love that you're living with us, we do'nt want it any other way so we need to work this out. she told me all she wants to do is "chill" with her friends. I told her i understood but right now our priority is keeping her safe, and by finding out more and more about who and where she hangs i don't feel ok letting her out with them at her age. but that if she'd like to have a friend over that's ok. and she liked that.
i want to give her freedom but am jsut too damn scared as she is very very naive and i really think people take advantage of that
