Wen I was young, our local cmmunity centre used to do disco nights for 11-15 year olds from 6 to 9 pm. I remember trying to persuade my parents (I was 11 ) that I could walk home fine by myself. I had a friend with me to back me up. My father (who was a policeman) proceeded to explain to us (in glorious technicolor) what could happen to a pair of little girls on the street alone after dark. I can remember my friend changing colour We then agreed that we would be picked up ...
Right now, my daughters are only 8 yo and I drop them off and collect them wherever they may be going. It's actually easier for me than for most because we live way out in the sticks so I pretty well HAVE to do this (saves a lot of grief with the "nobody else's mum does that...".View Thread
I agree. Dance clubs may be marvellous in a perfect world but what is the supervision like? I suppose it all boils down to not what your children are attending but how much the people in charge are aware of their responsability.View Thread
Could I please ask you to use paragraphs to break up your text and some punctuation too? Please? I find it very difficult to read your posts because they're all in a single block. I'd love to read them right through but because it's hard (without paragraphs) to do so I find myself giving up after a couple of lines. I doubt I'm alone in this. Please For the comfort of your readers. I only ask because I WANT to read your posts...Please take this as a request and not as criticism.View Thread
You really need to take her to see a gyn about the month-long periods. It's not normal and it must be miserable for her, not to mention that it could be making her anaemic. It's bad enough being 13 without having that on top of it View Thread
