I am about to kick my DD out because she wont follow one simple rule
I couldnt care less if she does or doesnt come home that isnt the issue. I dont even care when she comes home if she does but it has been several times where I have locked up because she didnt let me know and she has to wake me up to let her in.
I dont think that it is that unreasonable for her to say if she will be home or not or she doesnt know. None of my other kids have ever had any of this. My parents had the same rule and I never had an issue with it either.
ETA: We have tried just locking her out. She will wake us all up. Constant phone calls, banging on the door, windows then she left and did it again the next time. She wont just learn.
ETA2: So I can stop repeating myself. She has a key however the deadbolt locks only from the inside. On the nights she comes home she locks the dead bolt.
I am not going to go out of my way to buy new things or change everything up so she can do whatever the hell she wants. As I said in the other ETA we have just ignored her and not let her in she just goes somewhere else (usually her bfs place) so that isnt really a consequence for her.
Also I dont think getting the police involved is worth wasting their time...i told her to follow the rule or get out
