My 13 year old has a school valentines dance tonight, and we went dress shopping a couple weeks ago. Took awhile to find something appropriate for her age, and this morning I took it out of her closet to press it for her, and the dress is completely altered! She took it to her friend, and they cut and sewed it so thats its very revealing and short!! I told her no she couldn't wear it, and would have to choose another dress. Now she went and is throwing a tantrum, slamming doors, and calling me names. Her dad just stormed up in her room and said he had enough and shes no longer allowed to go to the dance and she has to stay in her room the rest of the day. Argghh!! Now she is up there kicking the walls and throwing stuff around in her room.
I feel bad that she has to miss the dance.Was this handled well or should it have been different?

She had no right to alter that dress. Throwing a fit like that while calling you names, she can keep her butt home and soak on that. Don't feel bad. What you did is right. Having a fit like is not going to get her way and they need to know it.
