My daughter recently ran away,and has been skipping school,she came back but now I've just received a court date for delinquency.The kids here walk to school and even if they are taken to school by car,they either walk right out the other door or just leave when they want.Why are parents being held responsible for these things? Is that not the school's responsibility once they are there? Secondly as a parent What can I do? I can't tether myself to her and go to school with her,and If I try to discipline or ground her,she runs away whether in the middle of the night,on the way to school or back,or as soon as you aren't paying attention for 2 seconds.This is ridiculous that I have to go through this,Please help!!!
