Two teen girls were arrested for drugging one of the girl’s parents. The girls did this to ensure they could access the internet after curfew. The drugged parents did not hold back. When realizing what had happened, the parents immediately took action to enforce discipline and parental control.
The parents of the teenage girl can truly be admired. First, the parents had an enforced internet curfew. Second, the parents went to the police for a drug test. Third, when the tests came back positive, the parents brought charges against their teenager.
These parents did not hold back in discipline. They engaged the police to ensure a quick stop to the teenager’s rebellion. In doing this, the parents send a strong message:
- We are your parents
- We care about your well-being
- We will enforce discipline, using all means at our disposal to ensure you (the teenage) understand that this behavior will not be tolerated.
- We will continue to enforce the internet curfew
- We will ensure that you understand the consequences involved in your (the teenager’s) actions.

The medicated shakes worked, but the parents became suspicious when they woke up groggy the next morning, Rocklin police Lt. Lon Milka told The Sacramento Bee in a story Thursday. They obtained a drug kit from police so they could test themselves for tampering.
The tests came back positive, and the couple went back to police with the results. Their 15-year-old daughter and her 16-year-old friend were taken to Juvenile Hall on Saturday and booked on suspicion of conspiracy and willfully mingling a pharmaceutical with food, Milka said.
Child therapist Leslie Whitten Baughman told The Bee that while it is normal for adolescents to act out while asserting their individuality, drugging their parents "would not be a healthy level of rebellion." Milka said the younger girl told investigators that she thought her parents' Internet policy was too strict. Internet access at the family's home was shut off every night at 10, he said. "The girls wanted to use the Internet, and they'd go to whatever means they had to," he said. (foxnews.com)
