At least that's how the 14 yr old feels about us.
She got herself grounded from her room. Yup that's right grounded from her room. She is to sit at the dinning table and do her homework and study till dinner time then after dinner shes to do her chores and then go to bed.
Why is she grounded from her room?
Lets see, she never came home when she was suppose to a week ago and we had to go searching for her only to find her playing games and hanging out with a kid we dont approve of. Cause of that she had her cell phone taken away until further notice and grounded a week to not going and hanging out, we also had her do extra chores over thanksgiving weekend and no desert for thanksgiving. (this wasn't the first time she had pulled a stunt like that, that's why it was more harsh).
Then 2 days ago she got a ride from school with a "friend" she doesn't even know the girl and couldn't even tell us her name, and shes been told not to get in the car with anyone unless we know them and approve. (she has gotten in the car with a kid who only had a permit and wasn't allowed to have anyone else in the car by law and she was speeding down our street). Cause she got a ride she was home 10 minutes early and we weren't home yet (she got home at 2:55 we got home at 3:00 she doesn't get off the bus and home till 3:20 usually so we were home before she was suppose to be home) well cause she was home early she decided to break in a window to get into the house (shes not allowed to have a house key since she has lost 3 keys already and someone is home by 3pm everyday). When she pulled the window open she BROKE the lock and the window latches. She's been told not to break into the house every she got in trouble for it before but now this time she broke the window it wont even lock anymore and is letting in a freezing breeze.
And on top of everything else she has been disrespectful to us and other adults, she has an attitude towards us about everything and is rude all the times.
So again your wondering why ground her from her room. Well its cause it seems to be the only thing left to take away from her that she might care about. She has had her DS taken away and not cared enough to shape up, shes had her cell phone taken away and it still barely bothers her, shes had drawing stuff taken away, books, games, toys, we have tried EVERYTHING. So the only thing she had left is her room so DH decided it was the only thing left so we would take that away now too.
