My daughters teacher said she can't drink anything with sugar or caffeine this weekend

It has been super humid and hot here which is not normal for southern ca and its hitting the kids hard during band practice so the band director told all the kids to drink extra water and not to have any thing with sugar or caffeine.
For some reason coming from him she listens! Last night when she had stomach cramps and felt bad and I bugged her about drinking more and she just said yeah ok and kind of blew me off. Today he told them to go home and drink water and maybe gatoraid and rest and she's been drinking like crazy. I guess moms don't know anything!

Dye water add salt, make her think it is something tasty until she takes a drink. Then say that's what you get for not listening / believing me.

If you learn the following your life as a parent will be easier:

1. You don't know anything

2. You never knew anything

3. You will never know anything

4. Therefore, you cannot tell them anything

Pretty much she's a teen and knows all there is to know about the world! Stomach cramps and fatigue isn't a sign or heat sickness at

You should know by now that parents don't know more than the non-parent entities. Jeez. It's not like you've raised the kid their whole lives or anything, get a grip.

 When they get somewhere in their 20's you suddenly grow a brain. You just have to wait for it.
