My son, 18-and-a-half, lives at home. He hasn't made a decision about a job and/or school yet, and we're letting that go for the moment as he needs to have two separate surgeries which will mean time off from school and/or a job on two separate occasions. In the meantime, we take care of his needs including a cell phone. In return, he has to follow our house rules. One of the rules we put in place was that he let us know via a phone call or, if past 11:30 pm, a text message if he's going to be out past midnight and/or spend the night elsewhere. Mostly, he's in by 11:30 or so and is good about texting if he's going to be out later. However, for the fourth time in five months, he's stayed out all night and not called or texted. I know, and he's admitted that he deliberately does NOT call or text because he's doesn't want to be bothered with explanations and thinks the rule is unreasonable to begin with. I'm wondering if I'm over-reacting about his staying out all night once in awhile and that maybe I am being unreasonable. What do you all do?
