We all love our children, but what do you do when that cute little girl of yours grows up to be a defiant teenage trouble maker?
Today, I’ll share the story of how a rebellious teenager in a gang-infested neighborhood escaped to develop a new life on a homestead.
Raising a teenager is challenging—always has been. But imagine you’re raising one in a busy California coastal town—say—Santa Barbara.
It’s 1996 and the city is besieged by violence. The police have their hands full with over 800 gang members, creating a steady stream of mischief.
And there’s been an increasing trend in real violence. Drive-by shootings, gang rapes, brawls, stabbings,
And here you are, a single mom trying to raise a 15-year old by yourself.
So, what do you do with your rebellious daughter?
You stick her on a plane and sentence her to a new life on a homestead.
