The FOURTH positive? Honey, if that were my daughter, the FIRST positive would send her there. I believe in giving people a chance, but FOUR chances? No. And those drug tests would be so random that GOD wouldn't see them coming.
As for the going to school, she would GO to class if I had to go and sit with her the whole time. There would be NOTHING until her grades came up. No phone, no computer, no time with friends. Yes, she would hate me, but at least I would know I was doing my job as her parent.
As for the computer, password lock it. Most computers have a password lock feature that you can use and no one will be able to get in it without the password. Just make sure it is something she won't guess and you won't forget.
Counseling isn't a bad idea either, both with you and without you. There may be a reason she is acting this way. Get to know her friends. Is there a new crowd she's running with? When did the behavior start? Questions like that can lead to figuring out what is wrong with her.
Be prepared for her to hate you. It's coming. But like I tell my daughter, if you hate me, it means I am DOING MY JOB AS YOUR MOM.
Ultimately, this is your child and your decision to make. I was just telling you what I would do if I were in your shoes. Good luck, and I hope that you find the answers you need.
