I am so sorry to hear of this situation. Unfortunately, the rearing of teens is not an easy task,
The age of majority
in Texas is 18 so you are totally responsible for her until then
I suggest you might want to consult with someone in your department of Juvenile Services and tell them that you are worried about your daughter and that you would like them to talk to her to explain the dangers she risks by not going to school. That she can be charged with the delinquent act and be sent to a home until she is age 21.
Honestly, it is not a whole lot you can do short of maybe a home school program or if there is an alternative school she may want to go to
Also at age 17 she can quit school. So perhaps you might want to talk to her about that. And look into how she can get her GED instead of the high school diploma. Explain that she will need to get the GED and then go to work. That she cannot just hang around the house causing angst to you and the other family members
I wish here was a magic pill to help teens to wake up and take caution but there isn't. We can only do the best we can as parents. It is a shame because we know she is the one who will be on the losing end
