  • Oh, how fun for her!

    I remember when I was her age and girls in school were SO PISSED at their parents 'cause they wouldn't let them go see NKOTB on a schoolnight LOL -- but I was there! 3 times back in the day.... 12 times just this past year :-)

    Ya gonna let her skip school tomorrow, too? ... or will she be a walking zombie all day? Hehe

  • I got to go to the NKOTB school night concerts but only if I went to school the next day. We even earned skip days in my family, one per marking period for good grades, but I wasn't allowed to use it for an after concert day. lol.

    Lucky, 12 times! I only went three this past year. Couldn't get out of state.

  • I do want to see this with my daughter, 15, for pure entertainment and the visuals. Fun! We've discussed this movie and the book series which we both read, at length. Have you read the books? You might, at a later time, want to use this series as an opportunity to discuss the portrayal of Bella, the main character who is so obsessed with a boy that his leaving her sends her into a deep depression and then she proceeds to take almost suicidal risks because it summons up images of him. She cannot live a normal life without him, is utterly dependent upon him for her happiness, and then they have sex (last book, I think) where he "accidentally" hurts her, and she has his baby even knowing that doing so may kill her. Yeah, it's a popular and age old theme, falling for the "bad boy" and sacrificing much to be with him, I suppose, but not exactly what we want our daughters to idolize or emulate. (not that they necessarily would)
