Unlocked Window Is A Mothers Cool Mystery

By: Repeller
Clorinda was a divorced mother of a 13 year old daughter. She lived in a nice suburban area in a mid sized eastern city. She has all the minor problems associated with raising a teenage daughter alone. She has never had any major trouble.

Lately she has been thinking that her daughter is sneaking out of the house at night to see someone. She believes it is a male friend but is not sure. She does not want to accuse her daughter without proof.

She believes this because her daughter oversleeps almost everyday. She seems to be exhausted all the times. Clorinda has even found her window unlocked several times. She was desperate to know the truth. She feared not only for her daughters safety, but for her own safety as well. She did not want to wake up and find a stranger in the house.

She planned on confronting Clorinda about this, but she needed proof. She decided to act like she was going to sleep at the normal time, but instead of sleeping she would watch the street for signs of her daughter leaving the house. She did this for a few nights. It was becoming exhaustive but she was determined to find out the truth.

One night, she heard what sounded like a window opening. She thought, now I have proof. She waited a minute, and then checked her daughters room. She thought, If she is gone I will sit in her room and wait for her to return. Then we will discuss the house rules.

She went into her daughters room. She expected to find her daughter gone. She was surprised. Her daughter was in bed sound asleep.

The window to her room was open. Now she was really afraid. She wondered who might be hiding in the house. She quickly woke her daughter.

Her daughter asked what was wrong? She said she think somebody maybe in the house, because your window is open. Her daughter said, wait mom there is nobody in here. Clorinda said how do you know?

Her daughter replied, I open that window when it gets too hot in here. Clorinda was both relieved and upset. She was glad her daughter was not sneaking out of the house. But she was upset that she would open a window to the street in the middle of the night and go back to sleep. From that day on, Clorinda adjusted the thermostat to a temperature that would suit the teenager. The problem was solved.

Children are sometimes very trusting. They do not always fully understand consequences of their actions. It is up to the adults to closely monitor them. It is not always easy to keep children in sight. But, there is a definite need to know what they are doing when you cannot see them.
