I do think we need to be strict with her. We are sticking to the no privacy at home thing. She had a friend over yesterday and was not allowed to go hang out in her room. Her friend asked why and she tried to lie and say she had ants in her room!! We were not about to let her make people think we had a dirty house so we told her friend the partial truth...grounded from her room except sleeping because she did things on her computer we had told her not to. If it embarrassed her then oh well. She should think about her actions more then.

We have had serious sex talks with her. Hopefully some of it sank in. She is so defiant though so who knows. We don't give her many rules, but she seems to break them anyways. And then she tries lying to get out of it and she is a bad liar.

Hubby did allow her to go see friends tonite. They were going to a sporting event at school and then sleeping over at her friends house. We had her call us from the event and told her to call us when they get back to her friends. We also didn't allow her to bring her iPod or laptop with to her friends. I think she should not have been allowed to go anywhere....but it was hubbys decision.
yeah your hubby needs some lessons in punishing a child... I'm sure my mom's free to give him a few pointers tomorrow....

I got grounded in 11th grade. I will spare you the details, but I got 30 days grounding. No TV, no phone, no hanging out with friends outside school. I got one exception, I had a ticket to a school play, and they let me go.. dropped off at the door and picked up minutes after it was over. I had a boyfriend of almost 3 years at that point who didn't see me outside of school/school work for a month. Longest month ever, but I had some fantastic grades at the end of it.

I think it was fine for your DSD to go to the sporting event, but she should have had to come home after rather than going to the sleep over. Kids learn very little when you don't stick to your guns. I think my 30 day was my LAST grounding... I was tired of having what little social life I did have taken from me.
