Hi Desperateparent...

I'm not a Researcher and cannot offer you the answer..

However, I am a parent of both an adult son and daughter ....and believe me..

I know how hard it is to raise teenagers...

Rest assured that someday, with the help of God and whatever,

Your daughter will turn out okay :)

Is this the kind of program you're seeking?

This is time for a second opinion.  Parents have different views of
their kids.  What may seem horrid to you may be not so bad compared to
the kids in boot camps.  (You may be correct, but this is a big step,
so please do consider a second opinion.)

Check and see if they still have Tough Love programs, and if so do
they have them near you.  Ask the parents in Tough Love if your kid is
that bad.

I remember asking a fellow worker what to do about a daughter around
17 who was rebellious. He said, "Please tell me exactly what she does
that you consider to be rebellion."

I told him she sulks when I ask her to wash the dishes.

He said, "Does she do the dishes?"

I said, "Yes."

He said, "That is not rebellious. If we were to ask our daughter to
wash the dishes, she would scream obscenities over her shoulder as she
ran out of the house and down the street."

Our daughter has a Master's Degree, and is working on her second
Master's Degree.  This though she is full-blown dyslexic. A real hard
working kid -- if an old dad can call a 38 year old woman a kid -- and
I note she has a really neat dishwasher in her house.  Before she
married, she bought plastic plates and plastic eating utensils in bulk
lots.  :)
