My step-daughter has been doing and saying stuff since me and my wife have been together and we are in dire need of some answers.The first instance she accused her grandmother,grandfather,and her dad of sexual abbuse.then she said people have said they were going to kill her and we went outside and nobody there,and fresh snow on the ground leaving no tracks.then she pulled a phone prank on a girl at school cussing her saying she was doing drugs she was going to beat her up.we gave her a drug test came back negative.she went to school claiming we beat her and DHS showed up on are door steps.then last night she bit her sister on the face said they were playing.but then we caught her sucking on her arm like she was trying to leave bruises in the shape of fingers.O yea bi-polar runs on her momma and dads side of the family.

Your step-daughter is suffering and needs treatment.
I highly suggest you finding her a really good, qualified Child Psychologist to see.

This is no way to live for any of you, and un-treated, I could almost guarantee this behavior will get worse.

Here are some links for you to seriously explore:

I would be happy to help with more resources / info. if you write back with your city / state of residence.

Take care, and please do not wait to seek help!
