rearly ever have a problem with 17 yr old easy child daughter. She has been my savior through all my drama with difficult child, because she is such a great kid. Anyway, this is her first year driving and last night they were predicting possibly an inch of snow in our area. She has been warned that when it snows she will not be driving until husband can take her out for some practice. I went in last night to tell her that if there was snow this a.m. I would be driving her to school. She wasn't happy and started trying to use the fact that she brings her girlfriend to school everyday, so I would have to provide her a ride also. I said, I don't think so! I explained that I would have to leave work as it's midterm week and they didn't have to be in until 9:30, to bring her and pick her up and then make up my time and I wasn't using extra time to drive accross town for her girlfriend. She tried telling me her girlfriend will have to miss school then because she's responsible for getting her there, so it will be my fault if she misses her midterm, to which I replied again, I don't think so! She tried everything from her mother is sleeping already so she can't even tell her she needs a ride. I got very angry and told her it's her friends parents responsibility to get her back and forth when it snows and that they need to consider themselves fortunate that is the only time they need to take her to school, or work as they both work together. I closed the door and as I was walking down the hall I heard her say to her friend, my mom is an f'ng piece of s!!!! I went back into her room and I flipped. She tried apologizing, but I wouldn't even hear it and then I went to bed. Of course I didn't sleep very well because I couldn't even believe she would say that. This morning I left her a text message, because we didn't get the snow, that she was to drive to school, to work, and then straight home for the night because she needs to take some time and think about why she would call me that. She texted me back saying she said it out of anger, she was sorry, she had stayed awake thinking about it all night and of course did not mean it. I texted her back saying, believe me I thought about it all night too. I know she's a teenager and she was mad, but I was so hurt that she would say that. I've decided she needs to stew over this a little and I will not give in and let her go out tonight. She can sit home without her car and hopefully think about what her reply to me will be next time I tell her she can't do something.
