In the past 7 months our daughter has displayed some behaviors that for some reason all of her friends are displaying. Such as cutting, claiming depression (and are on anti depressants), and announcing they are bisexual. One of her friends "Michelle" has actually attempted suicide twice and has been sent away but recently returned. Our daughter has told us that she is friends with them because no one else will be friends with them. Due to an incident of "deliberately disobeying" a rule for one evening we have told her she in no longer able to hang out with "Michelle". (since Michelle was involved with this incident) Now our daughter is displaying terrible sadness (pouting) stating that because of this, Michelle is hanging out with the "wrong" kind of friends that do bad things. Our daughter is an only child. We are looking for a second opinion on our discipline choice.
