I have a daughter finishing her 1st year in College that just turned 18, she graduated high school. a year early. She does not have a designated parking space at her dorm and sometimes when coming back to campus at night has to walk quite a long way to her dorm alone from where she has to park.
My husband and I pay for everything, tuition,car,insurance,gas,food,phone,you name it everything plus running around money. All we ask of her is to let us know via text or call each night when she is back on campus for the night so we don't worry. She turned 18 3 weeks ago and now says she thinks she is a little old to have to check in each night. We do not expect a call or a conservation of any kind, just a 2 or 3 word quick text saying on campus would be fine. We do not invade her privacy in any other way. I find this not too much to ask from her and see it as disrespectful that she can't give us this 2-3 second text to make sure she is safe and ease our worries.
I would love to hear your thoughts as to whether maybe I am the one in the wrong and am wrong in asking her to let us know she is back on campus safely each night? Maybe I am in the wrong and just don't realize it???? Would love your input.
