Menace II Society

Today, my teenage stepdaughter wrecked her third car texting and driving. I’ve pleaded with my husband to stop buying her new ones and to revoke her driving privileges. He’s so desperate for her to love him that he’ll give her literally anything. I’m scared she’s going to get someone killed. FML

She's already killing your spouse's pocket, that's for sure. She's also at risk of getting herself killed. Your husband may be suffering from parent anxiety and insecurity so the father needs to be checked. Maybe he needs therapy or some sort of severe talk due to buying her cars back to back. Your daughter definitely needs to be put on blast for the safety of her life and your spouse's wallet. If she gets severely injured, killed or serves time, it's gonna be worse for you and your man which is not fair for you two. Act fast, smart and accordingly ASAP!

make sure you are NOT on the car title of anymore of her car. put the car you drive in your name only (refuse to let her drive it) and get your own car insurance that she is not on. He is just as irresponsible as she is and just as liable if something hapens.

The person she could get killed is herself. Could be someone else too. Either would be tragic. This is a serious problem, and maybe she needs a program on her phone of parental controls that won't let her text while in a moving vehicle.

It "might" be tragic. She could be just an over-all garbage human being. I mean, crashing THREE fucking cars while texting and still a teenager? I mean clearly she either doesn't learn whatsoever or she doesn't fucking care.

Don't buy her anymore cars, don't let her have her phone while driving.

How can she control what he does with his daughter and with finances that are in his name? She can ask him and plead with him and give him advice, but at the end of the day, he doesn't seem to take her advice seriously when it comes to his kid and his money, and as she's not the bio mom, she doesn't have a leg to stand on if she were to try to take away her phone or car as the step kid would just complain to daddy and get it all back, or send the step mom packing. It isn't as easy as you would think to control money that is in someone else's name. (Which I'm assuming it is, or she would have said something about the money she lost each time.)

This is the kind of thing that pisses me off. One of my biggest pet peeves is texting and driving, and the annoyance highly increases when the culprit is a teenager. And your husband is just enabling her. Buying her ANY car with this kind of driving record is ridiculous, but he's actually buying her NEW ones? This is NOT okay.
