Or what would a parent normally do??
The kid sis did not come home last night. She spent the night with a friend. I know she wasn’t kissing a boy or getting up to teen mischief. I almost wish she was a little.
So when I asked her “What in the world, coming in a 5:00 a.m??” Blood on the clothing and looking like a drowned rat…
She said she was just doing some necessary designated driver and stormy weather friend duties.
A 17 year old friend of hers ended up drunk at a frat party, with a guy who wouldn’t take no for an answer. My kid drove all the way to the other side of the South Campus (Way south Seattle) in this storm, got her friend out of the frat party gone wrong, and got pulled over a block away for a field sobriety test. Passed. Almost got taken in due to the underaged half naked drunk girl in her back seat. Tried to sober the friend up and take her home. Friend didn’t want to go home, so my kid took drunk friend to the older brothers house… in West Seattle… all the way out to the Far point.
There is blood on the kids clothing because drunk friend decided to cut her self up with a pocket knife. Kid sis knowing first aid had to do some bandaging. The drunk friend also puked a lot in the back of the kids car. Kid Sis predicted this however and lined the car seats and back floor with garbage bags. But still, that smell isn’t going to fade soon.
I HATE my kid sisters friends sometimes and I know that NORMAL parents would not put up with a kid coming in at 5:00 a.m. She’s not a prevention help line, and she’s not cab and she’s not a family councilor. How do I convince my kid sis she’s getting in over her head?
Parental advice any one?
