My Mood:
Am I being unreasonable? My 11 daughter thinks I am!

ODD was just invited by her good friend to a science fair at our local university. She was excited to go and I said yes, however I found out a few minutes later that her friends oldest sister (18 years old) would be driving and not her parents. I know her parents fairly well but not the sister.

I've always had a rule that my children are not allowed to be in a car that is driven by her friends older teenaged siblings. I've never had to enforce it until tonight. This is the first time the situation has come up. Now I'm wondering if my rule is too harsh or I am being too overprotective. Should it be on a case by case basis?

My 11 year old is laying in bed and moaning that it just isn't fair.
