My advice to you as a teenager.
If you are a strict parent, or may think you really arnt but your kid thinks you are, and your only doing it because you love him/her and want the best for in life so that they live a better life than you, than this may be for you.
I use to face this with my mom and dad, they are divorced and I am a pretty crazy kid.
I smoked, i liked to have fun, snuck out, this is not due to the divorce, this is just how I was.
My parents ground me all the time for stuff like this, and my word of advice to you, is to just let them, but with limits.
You have to let them learn from their mistakes in life and fix them.
Dont be such a hardass all the time, let them live.
Dont be like your parents were.
I thank my mom and dad everyday for doing this with me, I learnt alot from my mistakes and am a great person now.
This may not be for you, so I do not hold any responsibility to you and your kid.
But if you want to try this, please be my guest. It wont hurt to try.
