Bill :

Hello- Thank you for asking the question here at JustAnswer. I have read what you have written and am happy to respond.

Bill :

I am sorry to hear about this.

Bill :

The best way to accomplish your goal is to get in touch with the Department of Children and Youth Services in your community and explain to them that the child is ungovernable and unwilling to comply with parental rules and limits. She is involved with an 18 year old and the situation is out of control

Bill :

They will assign a case worker to evaluate the situation and use the leverage of the court to get things under control.

Bill :

Every county in the Country has a Department of Children and Family Services. They should have a 24 hour help line. call them today.

Bill :

I trust that this answers your question.

I wish you the best.
