Teenagers need instruction manuals

I have a 17yo daughter.

According to her, I’m a blend of the Wicked Witch of the West and the Evil Stepmother. Catch 22. No matter what I do, I’m evil. If I let her go to a party, I’m evil for not caring about her safety. If I forbid her from going, then I’m determined to destroy her social life. If she sneaks out and goes anyway, then I’m evil for not stopping her. I lose.

Sons are much easier to deal with.

I write science fiction, fantasy, and comic horror. I also have a whole horde of children and a lot of opinions.
