I’m heartbroken. 11 yr old girl diagnosed at age 3. Found out yesterday she’s planning to run away. She’s been looking on YouTube videos on how to, made her bag and set up the alarm for when we were sleeping. I caught her as she was sneaking downstairs. We had a long conversation about why she was doing it and it seems it’s my fault because I told her she’s very smart; book smart but not street smart and she wants to prove me wrong. She also said she’s very angry all the time. Also, I know I’m her trigger and don’t know what to do to prevent it. I know I’m not her favorite person as I’m the rule enforcer. She knows the rules and expectations as we come up with them together but she holds me accountable for everything and doesn’t think she should be accountable for her decisions.
