My 13 year old daughter goes out almost every day, What should i do about it? [read info]?

My 13 year old daughter goes out almost every day, What should i do about it? [read info]? Topic: Should i stay up all night doing homework
July 19, 2019 / By Derby
Question: My daughter, who is thirteen, is always with her friends. She likes going to her friends houses and having fun. I ALWAYS know where she is. However, shes been lieing and not helping around the house. She has an attitude. She tries to come up with excuses all the time. Im worried now and dont know what to do. She says she doesnt go out EVERY night but I believe going out almmost every day is way to frequent for a thirteen year old. what do you think ? her grades arent slipping. and i know that from her report card. she did her homework right when she came home, then asked to leave right after she got back.

If she doesn't do what's expected of her, ground her. If she doesn't clean up around the house- don't allow her to go to her friends house that day. If she values her social life enough, that should do the trick. Also, if you don't like her being out every day- set days for "family time", where she'll have to stay home. At 13, I think that social outings should only be on weekends- maybe occasionally on a weekday. Ask her what she does when she's out, get to know her friends/friends parents, and make sure she's not into anything she shouldn't be.

Is it every day or every night??? That makes a huge difference. But if she's lying, not doing chores and has an attitude, going to the friends' house is the perfect punishment for all of this bad behavior. She can't go out of the house for a week for lying and talking back.

13? Wow that's young,I started hanging out with friends and going over to their house at about 16 since my parents were very strict.Don't let her go to her friend's house if she has a attitude and does not help around the house.Forbid her from hanging out with friends until her behavior improves make sure your point gets across.Keep a close eye on her she sounds rebellious...

It really depends on who her friends are and what they're doing. As long as she's not hanging out with the wrong crowd, and you know her friends and have met their parents, I'm not sure what the harm is if her grades aren't affected. I assume the parents are home when she's over her friends' houses?

You need to act like a mother not a friend. its good that you know where shes at but if shes lying to you about things pretty soon she'll lie to u about where shes at. no offense but if u let her at it she'll end up pregnant. she goes out way too much, and u need to fix this. seems like she doesnt have much respect for you. why don't you have certain days like the weekends when she can go out, u already do too much correct me if im wrong but u cook,clean,pay her expenses and the roof she's living under..the least she can do is help u out and have respect to the woman who gave birth to her. Kids, they think everything is easy

you should just let her be shes probably having fun with her friends. my daughter is 13 too and she goes out with her friends or guys every night. If i were you I wouldn't be worried about her.

This is way too obvious. She'll knows its you and shes 18 years old im sure she's not going to believe a mystical being named "angel" wrote this to her. She'll eventually figure it out to be you especially with your knowledge of her history and the way its being pointed out and reminded to her. Im sure she regrets those moments and bringing them up and almost throwing them in her face is a bit insulting especially when using the word "idiot". She's an 18 year old girl and its her senior year in high school she's definitely sensitive right now and will take those words to heart and instead of seeing your concern she'll think you only are worried about her making more mistakes. When your parents doubt you and your judgments that takes effect on you. You obviously don't believe her to make a smart decision especially at this situation but maybe trying a different approach will better an outcome you can both agree on and feel comfortable with. Let her know how you feel honestly about going to this nightclub. Before you start, ask her to let you finish before trying to argue. When you're done telling her everything that's on your mind about the situation maybe give her another option to have fun with her friends. Maybe give her an idea and tell her if she doesn't go to this nightclub you'll let her take a trip with her friends one weekend or even promise to pay or help pay for any prom dress she wants. Bribery is a teenage girls best friend. :) Anyway, goodluck! Best wishes to you and your daughter.
