My daughter has joined a COVEN!! I have no idea what to do! She is 13 years old and since school started this year there has been a big change in her personality. She has started dressing all in black, wearing strange makeup and listening to music which I can best describe as death rock. She has become very anti-social and demanding. Last week when I took her shopping for *clothes* and *cd's* she walked in front of me and refused to speak to me! I tried to make up for whatever I did to upset her by buying her a new earing for her nose, but she just refuses to be civil anymore!
Now she has joined this COVEN!! She told me she is going to be initiated on Friday night at a big party in the woods.
I am afraid, Annie. Since her father left us this summer I have lost my little girl. Please tell me what I need to do to make her like me again.

Can you believe that letter? Here's my reply.
Dear Loving Mother,
Are you on crack? Cut the purse strings, keep her home from the "party" and call the cops! What is wrong with you? You are her mother not her friend. She doesn't need to like you, she needs to respect you. Right now she views you as a bank and you seem to view her as your means of validating if you are a good person.
Give me a break! Grow up, treat your daughter like your daughter and get your ass to Church and find yourself a new man. Make sure that this time you hold on to him. I suggest a wicked pre-nuptial agreement that will screw him over so bad financially if he leaves that he won't dare say boo to you. And if he's rich, you can send bratty off to private school.
In His Love,
I mean, how stupid are some people? There is just no such thing as common sense anymore.
