Dances

Wow, I am really at a turning point... Cutting her hair off, cheerleading.... and now dances.

We live in a pretty rural community. Well, many rural communities that all feed into a school. One of the little towns nearby hosts "pre-teen" dances for ages 10+ (not sure the upper cap, I am still asking around). My DD will be ten next week, and, of course, all the grade fives at school are a-buzz with excitement about being old enough to go to these dances this year.

Gah. How did this happen? Why is she old enough to do these things?

I remember going to pre-teen dances in a rural community that we lived in for a time when I was about her age and we always had so much fun. BUT.... I have been asking around and one mom told me that a similar pre-teen dance held in another town has kids making out in the corners.... I am not ready for this.

Have you let your pre-teen go to dances?

I am a middle school teacher. Ours are lights on and highly supervised. No making out allowed! Most kids go with their same gender friends and dance in big groups. I would let my daughter come to one of our dances.

We are always looking for chaperones. I would volunteer to help out if you are concerned.

I am hoping they are looking for chaperones. I have put out a bunch of feelers to local moms. DD spoke to me about it last night, and left me a note on the coffee pot this morning asking again if she can please go. I better find out all the details so I can answer her.
