It's vacation week and my daughter would like to meet 7 of her friends at the mall today. One is a boy who recently "asked her out" and she's known for 2 years. I know of him and saw him at a track meet...he seems very nice and is nice to her. Most of the others I know from band and other school events. This group is not my daughter's usual group of friends which actually consist of 3 other girls who are not quite as social as my daughter...or at least my daughter wants to be more social and hang with some others. She tried including her friends, but they don't want to go along. She's a bit hurt by that, but wants to go anyway. She's very trustworthy and an honors student. I'm fine with it, but isn't about 2 to 2 1/2 hours plenty to start?? Any thoughts?Answer Question

That said...when I was a teen I could spend hours with my friends...arcade, food court, clothes. Those were the days! Oh and NannyB, you are being overly suspicious. I had different groups of friends, once of which never wanted to go to the mall. Going to the mall with friends is an exciting and fun thing to do as a teenager. And with a group of 7? I doubt that they are going to be doing THAT much in a mall. I think it is horrible that you would insinuate that the OP allows her child to get into "compromising" situations just by letting her go to the mall.
