Back from College... I'm an Adult!
First time poster here and long-time follower. Hoping I might be able to get some insight:
I have two teens, 17 girl and 18 boy. Both good kids, with both parents involved and with modest jobs.
My partner has two teens 17 boy and 19 girl. Both good kids, but their dad has $$$, so there's entitlement there.
My partner's 19 year old is back from first year of college and has the "I'm an adult now!" persepctive.
1. My partner gives her the okay to drink alcohol at home, which I think is a bad idea, both for the example to the other kids and when she goes out with her friends.
2. My partner gives her the okay to have no restrictions on a reasonable time to go out or come home. So far, it's been out at 10pm and home between 1am and 2am. While my partner sleeps through it all, I wake up at the front door opening and hearing the kid in the house. *
Curious to read other thoughts on these two concerns of mine and if I'm overreacting expecting that my partner's teen shouldn't be drinking at home and should have a reasonable curfew on weeknights (maybe 12am) and weekends (maybe 1am)?
Thank you in advance!
* I should note that her bedroom is right above ours, so every sound comes right down.
