hell no... if she cant follow rules ...I'd have the phone and laptop in my possesion. And as far as helping out around the house... my oldest has an issue with this also.. But I give him one thing to do a day and it seems to be working out.

Yeah, I think if she can't help you work around the house she hasn't earned the privilege of any phone or lap top time.

What's really going on is you need to remove the phone and the laptop from her possession when she doesn't return home on time and then limit her "going out" time.

I agree 100%.

I agree with what's already been said.

Take all the other stuff away until she does what you are asking her to do. If she comes in an hour late she doesn't get to go out the following weekend (or next time she asks). There needs to be consequences (good/bad) to her behavior (good/bad).

My guess is that there are not any consequences for not listening. You need to stop yelling. If she comes home late, cut off her money/keys/etc. If she is abusing her phone, call your carrier and block all of the numbers but yours.
Do you get the idea? Just stay calm and serious, back up your words with actions, and she will shape up or move out

What is rally going on is that you are not following through on enforcing your rules. Take away that phone, laptop and freedoms....ALL OF THEM! once she proves herself you can give one st a time back. If she reverts take the privilege away again. Stand strong. Remember you want to raise a responsible independent productive citizen.

Sounds like what is going on is no consequences. Take away phone and computer until the housework is done. She comes in late, she Has to be in even earlier next time. It happens again, she doesn't get to go out at all.

 I agree, my son would lose everything if he can't help out and do his basic chores at home.
