Breaking Dawn is less than a month away. My teen's birthday is around the time of the movie's release. For her birthday, she wants to either go to the midnight premiere (and probably miss some or all of school the next day) or go to the 2pm afternoon showing on Friday, WITH a few of her friends.
I'm not completely against this because Friday is the last day of school before they get a week off for Thanksgiving break anyway. So, really, how much would she be missing? I also like to think I'm somewhat of a cool mom :D However, I'm not sure if the 3-4 friends she wants to bring have parents that would allow this.
How do other teens and parents see this? Would you let your child go to a midnight premiere of a movie on a school night? Would you let them miss part of school to see a movie? What if the movie started at 2pm and school was over at 2:30? Would getting picked up an hour early be okay with you?
Tell me your thoughts!!
