Customer Question

I just found out that my 25 year old daughter has been stealing from me. She lives at home and what caught her and when confronted she admitted to a cocaine problem. We checked our bank records and see that the stealing has been for the last month, that's how long she has been out of work. She worked as Bartender on night club for past year and that's where she started with drugs. So far I have taken her car, she is going to a cocaine anonymous meeting tonight, she is going to doctor today to discuss psycho therapy, and she starts a new job Monday. She seems willing to get help, but I don't trust her. She has been a problem for years. Right now she needs to be with me at all times, I guess I am her anchor. I don't want to make the same mistakes as before.
