That teen of mine- ugh.
She stayed the night at a GF's house last night. She asked if she could stay again tonight, No.
Finally got her on the line and agreed she needed to be home between 1 & 2. 3 o'clock rolls around and she comes strolling in...
This is the same family from Halloween who screwed up my plans because they have ZERO sense of time. I thought if I had put her in charge of it, "My mom said I need to be home between this time and this time", it would be ok.
NOPE. Guess the GF and DD are only going to be able to do things here :(

Tell her she is grounded 1 day for every 15 minutes she is late. (ex: 1/2 hour late =2days grounded) Bet she'll push the ride or ask you to come & get her. Or you could go to plan B & just have the sleepovers at your house. I like charlots idea too. That's what we do when we are dealing w/ people habitually late, tell them an earlier time.
