Daughter doesn't want to go to high school graduation?
I have a 17 year old daughter who is graduating high school this year. My husband and I are very proud of her, and up until today I assumed her graduation would be a big event for our family, my parents even planned to come to attend it. But when my husband mentioned this to her, she said she couldn't go. She got a job as a summer camp counselor at a place she's been working at for the last few years, and it intersects with the date of the graduation. We got in an argument this morning, I thought the graduation is important, her school even gives out awards and with her grades she has a chance at getting one. She doesn't want to start late at her summer job though, she has very close friends there and also wants to get paid, of course... She told me that she doesn't care about school despite her great grades she hates it. She also told me that she doesn't care about anyone in her school (she hates the small town we live in.)
What should I do? I want her to attend, but she is dead set against going. I don't know if she's trying to prove some kind of a point to everyone there by skipping it.
