My oldest daughter has always been a relatively good girl, now lately I've been having issues with her. First is the appearance of a very dominant personality, and an extremely scary violent streak... this showed up about 2 years ago, and has been getting steadily worse. Keila has never been terribly popular at school, at lately she's been having a few girls calling her a whore/telling her that she sould be a prostitute, telling her she's ugly (not true, she's quite stunning), and it's getting so bad that she's been ditching school to hang out with her boyfriend. And oh the boyfriend, 3 years older, already graduated high school... he's her guitar instructor (actually does get paid, hes a professional). Keila's also started to get herself pierced quite a bit, which is legal, yes, but I hate it. I also hate her wearing so much make up ( I mean she wears everything, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, foundation, lipstick)... I just don't know where the compromise is between letting her be creative and express herself but also having her looking and acting appropriately.
Any advice/experience is greatly appreciated.
