B. My 15-year-old daughter wants to get her tongue pierced. Any advice (for me or her!)? I personally find the idea dis¬gusting. Thank you. Barbara
C. We had another argument with our 19-year-old (yes, 19!) who just can't live with the limits we want to place on what we are providing in the way of money. The 19-year-old in question just finished her freshman year at an extremely expensive school. We told her when she was applying for schools that if she wanted to go to the expensive school, she would have to earn the money for her personal expenses. She agreed that was perfectly fair. Since then we've had two HUGE arguments about money. First, that she wants money for food. We told her we would buy any groceries she wants - just put it on the list - but we weren't going to give her money (what she really wants is money so she can eat out with her friends). Last night it was gas for her car (yes, she has a car of her own, we pay insurance, but the gas is supposed to be her responsibility). I've offered to pay her for babysitting our youngest child and she semi-agrees but whenever I need her she has other plans. What is wrong? Is she just totally spoiled?
D. I just discovered that my daughter (turned 16 in May) has been drinking with her girlfriends. She wouldn't give me much info on how much or how often but basically it sounds like slightly more than every two weeks and that they (a group of 6 or so) pass around a bottle of vodka and drink until they feel drunk. She has had a lot of freedom to spend the night at various girlfriend's houses - we know the parents of about half of them. I explained to her my concerns - overdose, risky behaviour, alcoholism, etc. My husband and I plan to prohibit her overnights and pay more attention to whose houses she is allowed to go to but I don't know wheth¬er or not I should talk to her girlfriend's parents. Any ad¬vice? Conflicted Mom
