POLL: Come on over, there's nobody home...

Friday, May 29, 2009 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... : I am a single mother with an 18-year-old daughter. I was called away overnight on business recently and I told my daughter that she was not to have any guests over while I was gone. I was back the next evening and the house was fine. She'd kept it clean and said things went well. A couple of days later when I was emptying the bathroom trash I found a condom wrapper. Now I am thinking the worst, but don't want to cause a big scene. But since it looks like she lied to me, I can't let it go either. How should I handle this?

POLL: The mom should...
0% (17) ... ground her daughter
15% (264) ... have a frank talk with the daughter about safe sex
14% (246) ... forget about the sex, it's the lying that matters
59% (1029) ... talk about the sex / punish the lying
9% (157) ... look the other way
1% (29) ... find a job that doesn't require her to be away from home at night
