Your daughter sounds like she needs to learn some lessons about maturity. I suggest you find a way to deal with this before she steps up her game to something more harmful.

That was plenty harmful already. I'm assuming he had to drive, work, and do plenty of other important/potentially dangerous tasks while drowsy. Someone could have gotten seriously hurt or killed. His kid sounds like an irresponsible piece of work that needs a talk about consequences.

Well yes, but there are still worse things the daughter could stoop to doing as "revenge." While I recognize that this is still pretty bad, you have to admit that she could move on to harming her parent more directly.

nice, now you have a dead kid because the cops just came and shot them. deal with family problems in house, the police are for emergencies.

Oh yes because all policemen are evil and they're going to shoot someone with no provocation. I don't know if you are a troll, but that is the stupidest thing I've heard all day.

She's literally putting your life in danger for her cell phone? Sounds like you need to step your parenting skills up a notch...

At that point it's not failed parenting as much as the daughter's stupidity. You shouldn't have to teach your kid, who I assume is a teenager since she knew how to and was able to get her hands on sleeping pills, that is it not ok to drug your parent because they took your phone. Like seriously, that's not something normal people think of and have to be told that it's not ok to do.

it's not the parent or their parenting skills that are at fault for this. it's completely the child's as THE CHILD PURPOSELY DID THIS over a cell phone to their parents. they knew it was wrong, that it was petty, and how fucked up it is but did it anyways. i see all the time working with kids with wonderful parents that are loving and have reasonable rules. that cell phone needs to be tossed in the trash, if important for emergencies, a restricted, low tech track phone. No internet. Limited fri

Honestly, you see what people SHOW. I've seen "great parents" who need a lesson or 2.. But hey, not arguing. I think if the parents did what they used to, and waited til an APPROPRIATE age to give the child a cell phone... they wouldn't be so petty? My opinion... dislike all ya'll want. My child would KNOW BETTER.. ( WITHOUT abuse..) felt necessary to add since people take things wrong?

We don't know when the kid got the phone or even the age so we can't say anything if that was a cause or not. Hell, depending where you live, phones are used now for emergency calls and keeping in contact with parents too. When you say abuse, are you talking about taking her phone and replacing it completely with a restricted phone? Are you seriously calling that abuse? ARE you a parent? No one took what you said wrong, you were judging the daughters actions as reflection of the parenting and t

If they pay the bill then they should cancel it, if it's contracted just buy it out and make her pay it off eventually...with money or chores etc. Shit would get real so fast.

So her plan for revenge was to make you sleepy? Or did she intend to use enough to cause some actual harm? Either way, good luck having that conversation with her, hope she learns how inappropriate and potentially dangerous her idea of revenge was.

Oh my, what?? You need to have a very serious talk with her, as well as an even harsher punishment now. Sleeping medication can have very bad side effects, not to mention, what if you fell asleep while driving, or even just standing, and seriously injured yourself. I've been angry at my mom before, but never enough to even think about endangering her life. I'm sorry to say, but I'd really watch and be cautious if your daughter from now on. She can't be trusted, and this isn't normal behaviour,

Yeah, your daughter needs to see a professional. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that giving someone sleeping pills (or just medication in general) without their knowledge is putting their health and life in danger. That kind of callous disregard for your safety is not something that can be solved by parenting measures in my opinion - you need a psychologist or even psychiatrist to figure out what the hell is wrong with her brain. She could've killed you.

I pretty much thought this too. She's old enough to have a phone, and old enough to know the effects of sleeping pills. Something is seriously wrong that she did this. You (OP) could have fallen asleep driving or anything else and that could have been a giant disaster. I suggest that this kiddo doesn't get the phone back, and talks to a professional. I'd also look into locking up any substances like this, since clearly she can't be trusted not to, you know, try and kill you.

Just a small thing to add to the entire possibly kill the parent thing. For all we know, OP could have an allergy to one of the ingredients in the meds, my mom personally is allergy to codeine.

Military school is not the military. It is a disciplined schooling environment that follows a military style system. Not everyone in the military is heroes, all kinds of people have assholes, but people who serve in their countries military have decided to potential lose their lives to depend it from other assholes.

Do you guys even know what military school is? kids get sent there when the public school system can no longer handle them. You get broken down, and then built back up into a functioning member of society. Not some pill slipping psycho.

If a kid does something wrong you don't just send them off.. OP's daughter did something really bad, but unless she continuously does harmful things and gets to the point of being unable to control her, I don't think it's the right move. If this is a first time thing then I still think there's a chance to...I don't know, parent and actually teach her? If a kid can't be taught and refuses to listen it's one thing, I don't see why you should ship your kid off when they do something wrong if it's n

Empathy isn't just feeling what they feel it's also understanding that they have feelings in the first place. A complete and utter lack of empathy isn't "I am not able to in 2 seconds understand WHAT you are feeling" it's "I don't care nor give a shit that you feel you're in my way now move and/or die" IF a person has an utter lack of empathy then they view other people as tools, objects, things. Not people. Ideally a person with a lack of empathy has been taught to know boun

No the military does not teach respect nor doing the right thing. In my time in the service the people rewarded and "respected" were those cheating on their wives. I was shunned when I was asked who I was going to sleep with on weekend pass during training and my response was that I was married. It was just expected that you lie and cheat it was damn near mandatory. Other people women especially are mere tools to get what you want and compassion is wrong. IF someone fucked up we were

Most people aren't preaching leniency as much as what you are.. Police, therapy.. We're just pointing out military schooling is not the best option here.
