Though she knows better, your 14 year old daughter has gotten in the habit of asking you if she can spend the night with friends in their company. You've reprimanded her whenever she's made the mis-step.
On this particular Friday (and not that you need her permission), you've arranged for the family to go on a spontaneous camping trip. She bops through the kitchen with a friend (of course) and asks if she can go to a football game then sleepover with her friend. You say "No." She wails, "Why?!" and starts sobbing.
You are not affected by her theatrics. After all: teenagers, right?
Her friend interjects and asks you, "Why are you being such b!#&h?"
What Would YOU Do?
