My daughter went to bf's house and was upstairs in his room, the "TV room" for hours. Mom wasn't home, but Dad was and she said "My husband was watching them". My DD told me she was downstairs in the room next to where Dad was, watching his sports. So, lied to me and I called her on it.
This violates our house rules where she is not allowed in any bedrooms, and needs to be on the same floor as other family members. She and I had a huge argument/debate about trusting her and about house rules no matter what. Putting the cart before the horse...future goals, etc. His Mom doesn't seem to think there's anything wrong, but I asked her if we could meet for coffee and chat. Funny, when my daughter was leaving the bowling alley last night his mom says, "Be good!" I'm not sure how to frame this issue so as not to alienate her, but this is her son's first girlfriend, and I don't think she has a clue. She is quite religious. Her son is no angel, I assure you, from the clues that have been "left around". (and neither is my dd, but again, this wouldn't happen at our house) I think he wants my dd to go as far as she will let him. I don't think Dad climbed those stairs to check on them much that day....How can I voice my concerns to this Mom gently, but effectively so she doesn't get defensive?
