A couple of weeks ago, we caught our daughter lying about where she was after school so we told her she would be riding the bus again and if she needed to stay late, we would pick her up. Today, she told us that she would probably be staying late and would miss the bus. I told her to just let me know and I would pick her up. This was communicated the night before and this morning.
I have an app that tracks where her iphone is. I could tell that she was almost home at 3:30 pm but didn't actually get home until 4:30pm. I'm not sure if she is aware of this app but she did turn her phone off shortly after 3:30 pm so I have no idea where she was until she got home.
Her story is that her friend drove her home and the reason they were so late was that her friend was busy chatting with people at school. So that clearly doesn't explain what they were doing for an hour between school and home.
I am honestly not concerned about drinking or drugs with her but clearly she is lying for some reason. I'm not sure if I should just accept her explanation at this point or call her on it.
