I had some extra vacation time, so I took 2 Fridays off in July and told her that I would bring her and a couple of her friends (2-3) down to the shore or to SixFlags for the day - just late morning to late afternoon - about 6 hours. She is 14 & her girlfriends are 14 & 15.
I just asked that she check in with me once or twice so I know she is alive and well.
Which was fine until last night when she is discussing it with her friends.
Suddenly, I'm treating her like a baby.
She wants me to drive her down there and just let her 'chill' with her friends without requiring a check in.
I don't want to give her the impression that I don't trust her nor do I think I'm treating her like a baby, but I do feel that I have other parents kids with me and a couple of check ins isnt' unreasonable.
What other ways would there be for me to have a comfort level without her feeling like I'm treating
