My teen daughter found herself on restriction this week. Now, she is arguing with me that I can't stop her from going to Sun and Wed night youth group at church. My issuse is that she is not so much going for the religious benefit, but for the social gathering with friends. She disagrees with me, but her ongoing disrespectful behavior shows otherwise. Restriction is restriction, right?Answer Question

If she is truly only going to hang out with friends don't let her go. If you let her go she will see that she is not really on restriction and try to get away with other things. Restriction is restriction. She needs to learn that. She can go to church on Sunday but that's it. Maybe missing out of something she loves to do will teach her not to do things that she knows she shouldn't be doing.
I am a mean mommy according to my 8 year old but I am one that believes that we are parents to our child not their friends.
