Okay, I'm sort of at a loss here. My daughter is 16 (nearly 17). She has her own car (a 1997 blazer provided by her step father and I). She has a 3.45 GPA. Has outgrown her experimentation with drugs and alcohol (via confirmed testing). Has a boyfriend (over 12 months now) who dropped out of high school, has a extensive criminal record, couch surfs, does not work and collects general assistance. She let him use her car, he gets pulled over for poor driving, the car gets impounded and he gets arrested. All this while she already had been disciplined previously for allowing him to drive the car. $700 later we wonder what type of discipline to impose. We have taken the car for the last two weeks of school, when she begins her internship for the summer. Good enough? Or should we be doing more? P.s. the boyfriend has offered to pay the money we are out.
