Hi, my daughter has just recently turned 10 in June. As its the summer holidays, i am allowing her to stay out a wee bit later. Normally on a school night shes in by half 7 and in bed for half 8/9. She has started going to the park to play with her friends, ive told her that on the nights she goes to the park, i want her back in the street for 7. She can still play outside but at least i know shes safe playing and where i can see her in the street. Shes started now telling me i treat her like a baby and all her friends get to stay out at the park till at least 8 which has resulted in her disobeying us and coming in when she feels like it. I just worry about who is out there watching wee girls, anything can happen in this day and age. Does anyone else have a similar situation and any advice how to deal with this would be helpful? My daughter does have a mobile phone but always 'forgets' to call me to tell me where she is.
