I work 2nd shift and get home around 1 Am. This morning I went up into my 13 year old stepdaughter's room to quietly put her clean laundry in there and discovered she wasnt there. Come to find out she had snuck out. I talked with her about it and she seems to regret doing it, though she won't tell me exactly what it is she was doing. I am worried about her. She has begged me not to tell her dad because she says he will flip out. Which is true he will. Not in an abusive way or anything, but he will most likely be quite harsh. She has a big school dance and sleepover this weekend that she has really been looking forward to going to. Add that to the fact that my hubby's big 3-0 birthday is this week and I hate to ruin it with this news. I am not sure what to do, should I delay telling him or what would you do in this situation?

What could a 13yr old girl be doing at that time in the morning? Well, it's not good. There is nothing to do at that time.....except get into trouble. I just think she's working you because she knows you'll give in and plus she wants to attend the dance and sleep over. She doesn't regret what she did....just that she got caught. Guarantee this will happen again and hopefully she will make it back home safe. I don't agree with not telling the dad.
