My daughter was recently introduced to screamo music and thst is suddenly all that she wants to listen to. I asked her to not exclude other types of music that she has always enjoyed, but that is not happening. It is dark, angry and mostly negative. If she was 15, I would expect this. Not at 12. Do I have a legit reason to worry? Any advice?

When I was young, Ozzy Osbourne was the devil. Now he's Amercia's favorite dad and in car commercials. I was told I would go to hell for listening to Ozzy, that all his music was satanic and he encouraged suicide and drugs. Now, the little kiddies in the back seat start with "bum-bum, bum-bum bum-bum bum-bum" as the whole family joins in singing Crazy Train. I listened to Ozzy when I was young (still do occasionally) along with thrash, punk, death metal etc. and I never killed myself. I also listened to Petra (Christian rock), and I'm not religious.

I wouldn't read too much into the music unless your daughter really starts giving off red flags. Keep an eye on her. Try to keep her involved in the family and activities she enjoys. But really, getting into the teen years, she may change in ways you don't like regardless of the music she likes. The "screamo" music could just be a way to release some frustration.

Well, not drastic changes. She is more distant from us and doesn't talk to us as much as she always has. She spends most of her free time in her room and doesn't display "excitement". Still a great student, responsible, and still has an interest in church. Overall such a good kid. Just don't know if i need to address this right away or just accept her choice of music. Music influences your life. .. right?

Other than the type of music she is listening to, has anything else changed? I'd be concerned if her behaviour had changed, but not just the music.
