So my 13 year old daughter has wanted contacts for quite a while now. She has worn glasses for about 3 years. We finally decided to go ahead and get her the hard contacts. Now, after several eye doctor visits to get the correct prescription as well as fitting, she is now not wanting to wear them. She acknowledges the fact that she doesnt want to take on the responsibility of taking care of them. Also, she is concerned about how this will affect her at school. She has slightly dark circles under her eyes and is not noticeable with the glasses on. But with no glasses, they are noticeable. I have already told her that we can get some makeup to match her skin color to cover the circles. Its really not a big deal to me, but of course, she is a teen and its so huge for her. She is not wearing them on her own free will, but wearing them because I am telling her to. This is what she wanted. Keep in mind, these are not covered under insurance. This is out of pocket pay and not cheap at all. So my dilema is this. Either force her to wear them to school and at home, against what she wants to do, or take the contacts back to the doctor and punish her. No TV, no internet, no phone, no weekend activities with friends, extra cleaning duties around the house, etc. for a very, very long time. Make her accept the responsibility or punish her severely for wasting our money and time? For the parents on the board, do you have suggestions? For the teens here, what would you do? Thanks in advance.
