My daughter asked to sleep over her friends house tonight, another 15 year old girl and her other 15 year old friend. I spoke to the girls mother to make sure that she was going to be there and she reassured me and said oh hey, they'll be fine i'm here. Cool right? Thank god my daughter was responsible enough to call me to let me know that this mother is going out from 6 till 7 *apparently to drop a hair curler off at a friends house for an hour?*- huh?? My bull**** detector went off the charts. Firstly why did this girls mother tell me she would be there and then leave them? Why is my daughter telling me and not her- she has my number she knows I would only let her stay with her present. Then I say ok I don't like it but ok, I will call you at 7 to make sure she's back. Then my daughter gets upset and admits that no actually her friends mother intends to be out all night until around midnight leaving 3, 15 year old girls to their own devices. To my mind that's actually more dangerous than one alone because, well I remember being a teenager and that scenario would not have been pretty. I suppose this is just a rant mostly because this mother assured me she would be home and lied to me. It's put me in a position of having to pick my daughter up and she was so happy and excited to be going to stay over. It's embarrassing for everyone involved and just not fair. I'm glad she owned up and for that i'm not going to give her a hard time. But ugh you know? I just know that if she had two girls staying over I would not take the opportunity to go out for the night. I would feel responsible for all of the girls and if anything happened to them when I was out those other parents would be within their rights to be ropable with me. I am so annoyed with this girls mother I won't say anything but I just can't trust that scenario or her it seems..
