Subject: There are Other Strict Moms

My youngest daughter (20yo) got a reminder today that she's not the only young adult her age with a strict mom. A friend of hers from college lives about 15 miles away (they didn't know each other until college though) so she drove up to meet her for lunch and then ended up going to her friend's house to watch Netflix (or some other type of television). She was texting me her plans as they evolved so I was surprised when she got home sooner than I expected.

Apparently my daughter's friend and her younger sister (high school aged) started arguing about what to watch or who got to choose what to watch and the mom came in pretty mad saying that she had already warned them once today to not argue so they were going to each spend an hour in their bedrooms.

My daughter said they tried arguing a bit (I can hear it- they won't do it again, I have a friend over, etc) but the mom didn't budge and threatened to increase the time so they eventually went up to their rooms. My daughter said the mom apologized for what happened but said it was probably best if she left for now but that she is welcome to come back anytime.

Although I don't send my daughters to their rooms, I still respect the mom's decision to punish her daughters how she sees fit and feels is best. It was also a good reminder to my daughter that I am not crazy when I tell her other 20 year olds have rules to follow.
