Does your young teenage daughter have a bedtime? Should young teenage girls have bedtimes still?
First let me explain “young teenage daughter”. By young, I am referring to the ages 13-15.
I had taken notice that my young teenage daughter was staying up late (1-2 in the morning) chatting via text message and Facebook chat. She is a good teenager with excellent grades, and my husband and I like her friends. We just feel that she is staying up way too late.
After some discussion, we decided to set a bedtime for her; midnight.
She demanded an explanation as to why the rule was put in place. She also did not agree with being given a bedtime, stating she was “14 & not 4.”
I would love to hear your thoughts about this topic & whether or not you agree with our decision.
