Am I A Jerk For Giving My Daughter An Indefinite Grounding When She Said This.

My daughter Nicole is a bright, sweet, and sociable girl. Last night, a classmate of hers hosted this “End of Junior Year, headed into Senior Year” party. I felt as though I’d covered more than enough the dangers of drinking, smoking, and getting pregnant at her age (I’m 34, Nicole is 17, you do the math).

I go to pick her up from this party and she stumbles into my car smelling like a brewery. I asked her if she’d been drinking, she said she never drank a drop, but giggled like a drunk as she said it. I helped her upstairs, into bed, put 4 waste baskets by her bed.

This morning she woke up later than usual and with a headache. I yelled at her for lying to me. told her she was clearly wasted last night, obviously hungover today and told her she was grounded until I thought of a real punishment, grounded until I said otherwise. She told me that I’m the reason her mom/my ex left and that her mom made the right decision leaving me. Am I A Jerk?
