My 14 year old is grounded for getting in a boys car (that we didnt know)after a youth activity. I went to go pick her up at the church and the boy was bringing her home. Shen didn't call before she left the church or tell us where she was going. So it's been 2 weeks since she got grounded and I don't know how long is to long to be grounded for this. I want her to learn from this. Any ideas????

We don't let her do thing without asking. She asked if she could stay at the church and play hide and seek with the youth group but then they decided to go to the park instead and that's when she didn't call...it was the first time she hung out with the youth group that was not a planned activity.

It's always good to know where you child is at all times. But if you usually let her do things without telling you then she thought it was ok. But if not, I'd say 2 weeks is good enough. Bc you don't want her to be real upset and want to sneak out. Good luck
