    a mother wants to know if it’s okay to kick her teenage daughter out of the house or would that make her a bad mother?

    "I’m a single mother of two older teenage girls. We all live with my parents and I’m at a bit of a crisis point in my life. My oldest girl has been giving us a really hard time. I guess it all culminated a few weeks ago when I was downstairs in bed and heard all this commotion upstairs. When I got upstairs, my daughter was about to smash the door knob off my other daughter’s door because she wanted her stereo back. When I tried to break up the fight and calm things down, she pretty much started to punch me and fight me. I just curled up into a ball to protect myself. My parents called the police and when they got there, she started swearing at them and told them that I had abused her and hit her. Thankfully, the police who came knew my daughter from another incident where she was caught being drunk at an underage party the week before, so they didn’t believe her. I told them that I was afraid and didn’t really want my daughter to stay there that night, so they took her to prison for the night, thinking it would shake her up and give her a reality check. It didn’t. While she was in the cell, she ripped up the thin foam mattress they have on the bed and shoved the pieces into the toilet in the cell then flushed it. The police don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. I’m thinking about kicking her out then having the locks changed. Should I? It just all makes me feel like a really bad mother. Am I?"
