My daughter was sneaking out during the night back in the summer, using her i-touch as a means of communicating with the boy she met up with. When I found out, I grounded her severely by restricting her privileges and returning the i-touch to her dad to keep at his house, (he bought it for her). She's been doing great since then as far as building my trust in her, as I gradually restored some of her privileges. We have bi-weekly meetings where we sit down and discuss her progress, reviewing positive and negatives. I suspected she was texting as she was also caught using some texting site through the computer, 6 weeks ago. Although her behavior has been better, she still tries to find ways to text her friends. She does't want to comply with my rules and needs to learn rules are set for a reason. However, it is the principal that she lied and deceived me, by sneaking the i-touch back into my home when it was supposed to stay at her dad's (no wi-fi). What are some appropriate consequences for lying and deceiving me? Thanks in advance!
