This probably shouldn't even be a question... but I realize today I am so burnt out. I have put so much time and energy into fighting "stupid" - and for what? Nothing changes. Nothing except I lose more sleep, get more stressed, and get more burnt out... I don't even know if I care any more. I know I'm supposed to care - but what is the point? After difficult child was caught using the internet inappropriately for the umpteenth time (exchanging racy IMs with 20-something men) - we suspended her computer priviledges indefinitely. And this is great as far as we can enforce it. Which means she uses the computer at school, at friend's houses, at the library, etc... She started a very part-time job a little bit ago...so now she has a cell phone. husband and I set some firm rules about the phone. And sure enough, just a few shorts weeks later - the rules are out the window. difficult child has been calling and texting at all hours of the night...and now husband spotted her new Facebook page - under a fake name, with friend requests all sent out to older guys. Part of me feels we need to do "the right thing" and cancel the cell phone... and the other part of me feels like saying "The Heck with it!"...she is so bound and determined to do the wrong thing - why am I even pretending that I can protect her from herself??? Keep the d*mn phone - at least she can call and let me know what ditch she ends up in! I guess I need some kind of pep talk or something... or a drink... or both.
