So my two middle daughters are in middle school and their school has a dance every month, my girls are 11 and 13. Well they have been wanting to go to this dance and have been asking me for days, I keep saying no, but I gotta give them credit for being persistent...Well they both left mad this morning and they both called me from school all sweet asking if they could go to the dance! I still said no and that their Aunt is visiting from out of town and coming for dinner and that's that!....Well they BOTH said "you are the worst meanest mom ever" lol.

Edit.. Girls just got home and guess what THEY ARE FINE, they weren't bullied or made fun of for not attending the dance :-)...they are enjoying their after school snack and laughing.. Guess they weren't traumatized by not being able to attend dances :-P..they even called their dad, they said he laughed and said "you already know, see you this weekend" :-).. I know how some of you just hate that divorced parents can co parent and have rules that go for both homes :-)

Well you sound like a mean mom. Your telling them they can't go at all and they didn't do anything wrong? What's wrong with them eating dinner with their aunt THEN going to the dance? Maybe their aunt would love helping them get ready for the dance! Time to re-evaluate your decision maybe?

Is the only reason why they can't go because their aunt is coming over for dinner?

Why can't they go?

Separating them from their peer group and a school event only serves to hinder their social life and alienate them from the majority of their classmates.

You need to think about that.

lol @ all the CMers saying you're awful for not letting them go.


Don't worry; they're young; just wait til they get into high schoo; and you tell them they can't do something they want to do. THEN you'll be the worst mom ever!
