O.K. my children have gone insane. No wait they are both teens and if they are lucky they will live to see their 20s! My dear sweet son loves his Xbox live. We bought him a 3 month subscription. Was that enough? NO! Hubby pulled up his statement and saw there was 4 unauthorized Xbox live charges. $6 here and & $12 there. "Do you realize that you are stealing money? OUR MONEY!?" "Um, no."
Hubby went to check on the kids like he always does before he goes to bed and Babygirl was no where to be found and her window was wide open!!! AFTER MIDNIGHT!
She was out with her skank-ho girlfriend that she has been forbade to see. I don't know what to do anymore. I have always thought I was a good mother now I am questioning all that. Where did I go wrong and what have I done to deserve this?

Oh my this isn't good. Ok...first off you are a great mom. Never forget that. We try, we raise them best we can. They know right from wrong.

Unfortunately, they grow up and get a mind of their own. We can only hope that they can eventually see what they've done.

I'm not sure what she got for punishment. It was something I didn't do harsh enough. I found smokes in Kats hoodie once, confronted her and threw them in the garbage, and grounded her for a week. OHHH bigg punishement.She took them out of the garbage. Sure she was grounded, but still had her phone, tv, games and shit. Yeah it wasnt punishment.

Had I done it differently, I'd have hit her where it hurts...taken the phone, banned her from dance (which was really a nono) but You get my drift.

You have you and hubby is the time to stick closer together. Set the boundarys tighter. Take things away. If she leaves the house again....remove her door.

Eventually she's gonna see what that skank ho g/f is all about, sometimes it takes a bit, but she will see it.

Hang in there, dont kill em yet.

Hi, i have been through similar treadmill. and have had my moments of tensions, anxities and depressions.
this is not only a transition period for the children but for us the parents too.
even we have to adjust to the changing times and demands.
this phase will pass off
just enjoy
you are going to miss all this when the children are grown up, busy with their lives and away from you

Oh I forgot, my BFF's daughter texted one month so much she got a bill for 672 dollars. Just thought I'd throw that in, to let you know you're not alone ;)

Yep, time to start hitting where it hurts and take things away that really mean something to them. I actually like the idea of removing babygirl's door. Let her earn your trust back if she's going to act like that.

Just for the record. Even children of good parents make mistakes. Don't doubt yourself.....the little buggers can smell fear :-)

My son sometimes plays Xbox live, only with our permission.. he verses other people around the world..and I always sit with him to hear what is going on. But, I cannot watch him play it, as I get kind of like travel sick from the games they play.. :(

Like others have said, you are NOT a bad mom. Kids just don't always have the best judgment. Now, my kids are not to this age yet, so what the hell do I know, but my thinking is that you need to come down hard, early. Before these things become no big deal to them. Especially with what Babygirl did. Bad things can happen when kids are out late--especially with undesirable "friends." Good luck with it all. It'll turn out fine--because you're a good mom!
