I saw another message sent in the early morning hours today - the endearing kind of talk that boys use to get close to a girl to get her to have sex...so I blocked his number from her home. I told her that we had decided to do this at least for now. I also told her to expect him to tell her awful things about her parents for doing it. She didn't argue about it (we watch MTVs Strictest Parents with her, so maybe that's why).
Denise's thoughts: I think you did the right thing. You used open communication, let her know what is going on, what you were going to do and then you followed through with your very clear message. Kudos!
