  • No not a chance. But she also will not be allowed to have a boyfriend at that age. She can go with her friends if a parent is somewhere in the theater as well.

  • As long as there is a parent there with them. 11 is a little to young to be alone in a dark place. or even alone with no adult, to even have a boyfriend.

  • No. Even if she is the most trust worthy child on the planet that doesn't mean that the kids shes with of her boyfriend are. A dark place with a boyfriend spells trouble. Maybe if you went along and sat right next to her and the boy then he wouldn't try anything for sure! She might think it is humiliating now but when she is a happy thriving adult that was never raped in a theater at 11 she'll thank you for it. Bad things do happen and its not always to someone else.

  • No. I also wouldn't allow my 11 yo to refer to a boy as her boyfriend.

  • I would let her go BUT since I imagine that they are all around 10-12 years old I would be RIGHT THERE with them...sitting 1-2 rows behind them. My sons weren't allowed to go to the movies with friends & without supervision until they were 15. They are their friends were fine with it because their friends' parents were on the same page we were and there were usually 2-3 sets of parents there a couple of rows behind, not just 1 set.
