  • Just tell her to have fun! She will make more friends she just has to be open to it , don't let her know your nervous. Maybe you could take her to get her hair done before the dance to boost her confidence?

  • Relax mom and she'll relax more. Tell her to have fun. Make the time before a fun time as well. Paint each others nails, curl her hair, munch on pizza & chips, etc.Tell her to be herself and others will see her for being who she is and like her much more then if she lies and makes herself into someone she's not.

  • Theres nothing like a pretty dress, curly hair and fake nails to boost a teenage girls confidence! She will love it and have the time of her life if she opens up to it and just goes as herself to have fun!

  • SHE HAD A GREAT TIME!! SHE ASKED ME TO CURL HER HAIR SO I DID. SHE WORE A PRETTY DRESS. THEN WHEN I CAME TO GET HER AND HER BEST FRIEND THERE WAS BOYS ALL AROUND THEM. SHE SAID SHE HAD A GREAT TIME, BUT DID SLAP A BOY FOR GRABBING HER BUTT. THEN THE OTHER GUY FRIENDS OF HER BEST FRIEND CAME TO HER DEFENSE. SHE CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT DANCE. THANKS EVERYONE!!
