I didn't realize the movie would get out so late ummm it started at 10:20 ummmmm they don't tell you when it is over ummmm So we explained that we were sorry it turned out she wasn't ready to go out with friends on her own.That this was her chance do it again and she would be hanging with mom and dad on Sat. nights.That was two yrs ago and whether with friends or boy friend she got her self home on time.She is number 2 ,number 1 pulled it also and I expect 3& 4 will also.You would think they would learn from watching the older ones get in trouble but nooo lol

My now 33 yr. old DD went to a party,when she was 17, I didn't wait for her to come home with a story, I went to the party with my nightclothes on,and told the DJ to stop the music,I needed my daughter, he stopped the music,cut on the lights,announced her name,he said Madam,thank you so much,if more parents would do this ,our youth would be better.My DD told me how embarrassed she was, I told her,I was more embarrassed and hurt and sad,when a parent is home worrying if,their child is okay,yes,that child should be punished for breaking curfew.my DD never broke curfew again,and since she always told her younger sisters this story,they never broke curfew either. I have been told by some parents that I went over-board,but,when you think of all the kids who went out and didn't return home due car accidents, drugs, someone snatching them, I think I should have done more.
