True Story: I had a friend whose Mom was like you...afraid to tell her 13 yr old daughter no, for fear she'd run away. Her 13 yr old daughter moved her boyfriend in(yes, live in boyfriend at age 13). My friend had her first baby in high school. She went to college, but dropped out as her drinking got out of control(her Mom let her drink in high school as long as it was at home). After her 3rd baby(born with developemental issues due to heer drinking during pregnancy). She now has lost custody of all 4 kids(3 different Dads) due to her full blown alcoholism. You may think, ohhhh, but my story is nothing like this one. Im telling you now, its exactly like this one. You need to parent. Not from fear, but parent for providing rules and structure to produce a productive human. You do that by GETTTING RID OF THE BUNNIES! She broke her commitment to take care of them & lost the PRIVILEGE of pet ownership! If she got a car loan & broke her payment agreemnt, they'd take the car away. Lesson!
