My daughters friends go to the movies and have McDonalds every weekend, they have sleep overs also every weekend- not at everyones house- only the ones with the latest electronic toys. My daughter was bought up to love animals, fishing and camping. Her friends tell her she is missing out on all the fun by being with us and not them. Apparently doing your hair is more cool. They are mean to her and when she gets upset they say she is being too sensitive or it was a misunderstanding. How do you keep up with all this crap? Why can't kids be kids? Why can't people let you raise your daughter the way you want. I want my daughter to be down to earth, level- headed, not high maintenence! I want her to see that the beauty in this world, doesn't come from a shop! and- Being with people who love and accept you is much better than being with people who only like you if you have the latest gadget/hairstyle. I think an isolated property looks good for these teenage years!
