Homecoming to me is a rite of passage, especially the dance and the party. Last year was my sd's first, so we had a great time shopping and doing all those girly things together to get her ready.
So homecoming is in 3 weeks for her, and we set a date this weekend to start shopping for a dress, then yesterday Dh sat her down for a talk and expressed his disappointment in her grades this year, and the fact that she has been in a lot of trouble at school this semester already, plus one incident where she snuck out for the night. He told her because of all of this irresponsible behavior, she was not allowed to go to the homecoming dance this year.
Well her and I are BOTH fuming mad, I just don't think he understands, I mean she is only in high school once and these are precious years for her. But once he makes his mind up, he won't change it.
I say let her go! What do you think, isn't homecoming too important to miss out?

I agree with your hubby on this one, it's just a dance it's not the end of the world, she needs to learn that life is not fair, and that you have to face consequences when you don't behave, it sounds like your trying to be the cool step mom to her, I would stop trying to be the "cool one" and do the right thing. Just my opinion not trying to offend you
