My 16 yo daughter left to go to the park/recreation center to meet up with her friend. I asked her to call me in a couple hours. 4 1/2 hours later, no phone call.
What is the acceptable time to let a teen her age take off and not check in?

oh ok I was thinking something different mine go to camp for a month and it is a tech free zone no cells,ipods,ipads,laptops so we don't talk for a month at a time...June.Your question ...if you gave her an amount of time to call you in then that is the correct amount of time.I do think the 2 hours was reasonable.I or we ,including kids, have been lucky they have been with friends that didn't call or answer their moms call and had the mother show up ANGRY.There is not the slightest doubt in my children's mind I would do the same so they seem(hope hope fingers crossed)to have learned a lesson via friend.We will see.Plus we tell them if you don't follow our rules without wheels we will not be providing wheels to ignore us in while driving.Worked with the first 2.
