Does my daughter deserve birthday gifts?

My Daughter's 16th birthday is soon approaching and she has been acting quite rebellious lately. She has not been her usual self and has been sneaking out late at night to go to Wendy's. I know this because I am posing on Snap Chat to be one of her high school friends and her bitmoji is always at Wendys at 12:00 AM. I keep telling her to quit sneaking out but i snooze quite early so I don't notice her leaving. I want to do something special for her 16th but I can't bring myself to reward this type of behavior.

I understand your dilemma, but she is your daughter and only turns 16 once. Punish her for sneaking out but celebrate her birthday. You should find out WHY your daughter is sneaking out. Is she needing a late-night Frosty fix or is she going there to meet someone? Is she walking there? Driving? I'd certainly take away her car and ground her for a month. Tell her if it happens again she loses her phone for a month in addition to grounding.
