Dear Dr. G.,
I need your advice, as I found my 15-year-old daughter using a second Facebook account which she was hiding from me. She was sexting, swearing, chatting indecently with boys from her school and others. I found some really disgusting pictures of her and other sexually explicit photos not of her thank God but she has crossed the line and actually stepped on me as she has been lying to me over and over again and I can't trust her. I am a single father who is trying very hard to install in my daughter good manners and moral behavior. Unfortunately, her mother is way too busy with her work that she is not paying much attention to her and I am the one catching her doing bad things over and over again. I try to discipline taking away her privileges and giving her some chores to do but nothing really major and she has gotten used to getting away with it but not anymore as I want her to be responsible and her behavior is unacceptable. I am meeting with my ex-wife and our daughter to discuss this matter further but I feel I am alone on this and that her mother is not very supportive as she always tells her do not do this again and gives her a hug and things go back to normal but they do not and I want this to stop. Any advice? I would appreciate it as I want to approach this issue with calm and make both of them understand that there are consequences for this bad behavior and we need to fix it.
