My 15 year old daughter lied the other night and told me she was going to the movies with friends and met a boy she had been chatting with online. She is a really good kid overall, gets good grades in school, shy, and does not have alot of friends that shes close to. She has never lied before and actually came clean on her own about it. She was punished and we took away electronics for a day or so. My husband and I felt that we would give her another chance, since everyone deserves one. We did tell her that we would be watching her very closely and that we dropped the ball too. Shes not involved with anything after school so we are signing her back up for karate lessons. I am still really upset by this and I know it happens. She even let me read the conversation with this guy she had on line which I could have done without. Any thoughts from anyone???

So far, so good, mom! YOu found out about a situation, and handled it appropriately (or as far as your post indicates)

Keep up the great job!

At first I thought that is very common as I did that as well when I was 16, I told my mom that I was going to a sleepover with my friends and we actually went to dance at the club. I'm not saying it was the right thing to do because thankfully nothing bad happen. I was also a good girl but sometimes you just want to break that and try new things thinking that your parents are not going to allowed as its easier to say sorry than ask for permission.
Now what worries me is the online guy, you know with many things you see on the news you don't want anything bad happen to your kids. It seems that you have a good daughter and basically what we as parents what we have to do is talk, talk and talk, tell her all the things that could have happen, tell her to trust you on anything and keep an eye on every single move. Wish you the best!
