To the movies lol....my DD is 15 she and a couple of friends made plans to go see a movie. I dropped DD and one friend off at the theater, gave them money and made arrangements for pickup....Their other friend got there but wasn't allowed to be dropped of so the grandma went and saw the movie with them...she even sat with them....My DD said it wasn't fun and very awkward. The girls always go eat and walk around the mall for about an hour after the movie. The grandma went with them. So my question is do you allow your teen to be alone at the mall or do you go with them? If you don't allow them to go alone when do you think you will? And why not? How can you expect them to be adults in three years when they can't even go to a movie alone?

Wow, I dropped mine at the movies starting in 7th grade. I take it she won't be getting her license anytimes soon, or she will not be able to drive alone at 16 if she can't go to the movies alone. These are kids that go wild at 18.

At 15 they could go to the movies, and the mall, but my kids would have involved grandma and made it fun. Grandma being there wouldn't have changed that for them, they might have just been a little better behaved.

My mother (cast as the grandma in this drama...) would have gotten them into more trouble. She'd have probably taught them to throw JuJuBe's at the people in front of them and taken them on a tour of every rest-room of the mall where they'd have put saran wrap over every toilet. 

I'd have had to come bail them out of jail. 

(not really, but my mom really is a riot and can make fun out of the most mundane things)

I let my dd hang out like that without me unless its a boy that she likes. In group settings I don't have any issues. She's 14. I guess I started doing the drop off in 7th grade (12). My ddhas a friend also 14 and she's not alowed to go outside alone. My dd stopped by her house one afternoon and the kid couldn't sit out front without her older sister with her.

Sorry, my 15yo is a boy. That would be why he would be with his guys friends. lol I forgot to mention that. If he wanted to go with "a" girl and no one else, it probably wouldn't happen. lol

I let my 13y/o dd go to the movies with a group of friends. She has done it for a couple years now. There is normally a parent around somewhere, maybe in another movie. I trust her. And she always has her cell phone with her, so I can reach her at anytime. I am a very protective parent but I am trying to let her have some independence.
