She is 12 - 7th grade.
Tonight I let her go trick or treating with friends for the first time. We passed them on the street and she seemed to be fine. Right in the middle of the action, laughing and having a good time. Then when she got home all heck broke loose. I simply asked if she had fun and she just broke down that no one told her they liked her costume that she hand made and worked so hard on. She said EVERYONE looked at her like she was a freak. WHAT? A freak? I know several people that saw her before she left that told her how amazingly creative she is and that they thought she did a great job. I think she is over exaggerating a bit.
I'm so worried for her. I thought it would be good for her to go with friends because I think she hangs out with us parents way too much and she needs to start being independent a bit. But now she's just mad and I don't even know why??
Any advice or experience here??
