How much is too much when your 16 year old daughter wants to hang with her friends almost every night, because "ya, know Mom, it's summer!" She has a lot of friends and seems to have something to do like 5 days out of the week. Movie here, drive-in here, going to the pool at this friends house, going to mall. It's like non-stop!! I know all her friends and they are mostly childhood friends. One has a pool so I get that because we don't. But she seems to be like planning something every night. Anyone else have this problem/situation? How do you regulate a 16 year old during the summer? Any advice would be great!!!
Note: She does do most of the laundry for our family of 6 which is great! She has soccer practice a few times a week. She will be turning 16 in a few weeks so she does not have a part-time job right now. She is not responsible for babysitting too much so she is not totally idle. I guess I just feel like she should be spending more time at home, which I'm sure isn't something I wanted to do. I was just wondering if anyone had a set number of days allowed to go out during summer.Answer Question

Are their moms on here that you wonder why they ever had kids?
