Good news. Does sound like she needs some behavior adjustment.

I'm glad she was found! My sister went through this with her oldest daughter...sigh. I don't think they did boot camps back then, although she and my sister could have used one!

A colleague of my husband sent his daughter away to boot camp. She'd got in with a bad crowd and was on drugs...they were at their wits end and had tried almost everything. The staff from the boot camp came in the middle of the night and whisked her out of bed. She was taken somewhere out west...in the middle of nowhere. She was there for several months...in the meantime she had no contact whatsoever with the outside world.

While she was there her family moved to a different area...in the hope that they could keep her away from her old mates. Unfortunately it was only a matter of time until she slipped back to her old ways.

My older daughter was starting to misbehave, she was about 15, I moved her to the UK! Of course I was moving for another reason as well... It helped in that she wasn't around any of her old friends and she had to learn a whole new routine. I think it made the difference. Of course, she stayed there and the rest is history....

Cheap perfume. I really wish people would stop spraying their cheap, stinky perfume. No, it doesn't cover the smell of your cigarettes no matter what you may think. And yes, it does bother my asthma.

I have been a none smoker for a year now and really can smell it on other folk more then I used to, it makes me think "did I stink like that"
Walking around Norwich yesterday I was surprised to see how many people smoking in the street and standing around having a chat with a ciggie, never paid much attention to it in the US!

I honestly would rather smell the stench of cigarettes than the sickly sweet of this cheap crap she's sprayed. She sprayed herself (about 6 squirts) at 7:00 this morning and I can still smell/taste it. It's now 3:30 pm. More than one of us here have asked her not to spray perfume indoors because it bothers our breathing but she doesn't listen.

So apparently as long as you call torture "enhanced interrogation" it's ok.
