raising teens

My 13 yr old sister, whom I practically raised is spiralling downhill. She snuck out didnt come back till 3a.m tonight, i found dirty pics she sent to someone on her email, she has accounts on porn sites... She is rude as hell, this is so stressful to deal with while being almost 37 wks pregnant. Idk what to do with her anymore and my mom is raising my brothers 2 lil girls so i feel the need to help her. She doesnt even want to graduate 8th grade.. I was a rude 13 yr old to but i never snuck out and i didnt watch porn. She is so exhausting to deal with..

I'd watch out with the naked pics. My nephews school just had 23 people expelled at his school last week because they were trading naked pictures of girl etc... they were all freshman and sophomores... I'm so worried that if its already this bad with teenagers how it will be when my kids are teens... try talking to her but aim more for understanding than talking down to her. If she's just watching porn and not participating I don't see it being a huge problem, boys do it all the time at her age, its healthy curiosity

Share your concerns with her guidance counselor and try to get her some help. Your mother is also going to have to step up and take control of situation.

In my opinion 13 to is too young to be going thru that phase. She needs a mama to put her in her place. Get her **** together. And some self respect. I was no angel, but those seem like 15/16+ behaviors. And the sneaking out, naked pics led to me 16 and pregnant. Im trying to be mean but as a mom now to a 6 yr old girl, she needs some serious  parental guidance.

Thats no normal teenager phase, Her Mother Needs to Step up, Your a good sister for helping, But wen it gets to this point its the Mother who must help this girl, Im sure her dad isnt round nd thats ok but mama needs to get tough on her or all will get worse, shes not too young for an a** whooping either!!! my 15 yo sister same way but shes an reflection of her mother and our dad hasnt been the best, there seekin love nd attention for their parents and it gets deep!! goodluck!

Exactly !!!, that is NOT a teenager phase . I have a 13yr old sister I KNOW a teenage phase. She needs some true guidance you need to talk to her about sex,drugs,stds,pregnancy,violence, &  MAINLY BOYS & how it really is out there for young girls like her who think they can be grown & know it all.

Well a normal teenage phase *, & yeah your mom gotta step it up cause they're looking for attention at that age and trust me she will find it some way or another.

When I was 14 I was like her and it took me catching herpes at age 14 to figure it out but I will have it for the rest of my life.. I'm lucky I didn't get aids or something. Because I was sleeping with older men that were obviously chomos. But i had daddy issues. I'm 21 now and I'm totally different and I hardly ever have outbreaks and accept it but back then I fell into a deep depression and felt so alone. Hopefully it doesn't take a lifelong consequence to change her!
