I have a 19 yr old daughter just finishing her first her of college. Her college was only an hr and a half away and so she came home most week-ends. She made friends with 3-4 girls on her dorm room floor. They all appear to be hard studying and non drinking. Back here at home she still hangs out with 3 girls that she went to high school with. They are all going to our 2 yr college in town, not getting good grades, drinking and partying most nights. We are a totally non drinking family. Teetotalers. I have many cases of alcoholism in my family. I don't really know how to handle these friends of my daughters. What we have basically told my daughter (who will be working a part time job this summer) that she can not stay out all night and she can not drink and live here. I have told her that her curfew is what it was when she graduated from high school last year and that is 1 am. To try and keep her away from all the all night drinking parties these other girls go to we have told her no to so called "sleepovers". We did tell her if she really honestly wants to have a old fashioned girls sleepover she can ALWAYS have them here.
No other parents have these rules however, all of their daughers are allowed to be out all night and sleep anywhere they want. She tells us she is the ONLY one that has to leave at 1 am and come home. No one else does. I would like some of your other mothers opinions on my house rules?
