My 16 yr old has been gone for almost 2 weeks this time, she thinks we are too strict as she has rules to do with boyfriends, drinking and due to previous issues she knows i don't trust her too much. I have given her ways to build trust and respect and negotiated ways to get some of what she wants but if it's not exactly her way she has a dummy spit and doesn't want to do it at all. Any thoughts or stories of your own teens i would be happy to hear. Boys sleeping over and allowing her to drink uncontrollably is not an option.
