    I Feel for my Daughter In the very early

    morning of New Year's Eve, I woke up and found my 19-year old daughter crying on the phone with her friend. I was surprised and worried about what is going on. Since I had to go out that morning, she just texted me that she will tell me about it when I get home. Later, I...
