|I think I would hear them if this was occurring...|
Should I go and check? I guess some parents wouldn't let them be in a different room from adult supervision at all. They are having a scary monster film fest, and I am pretty certain that the worst that is going on is a lot of giggling and excess eating of haribos.
My daughter and her mates are remarkably well behaved compared to me at a similar age. But then again she hangs out with boys her age as opposed to traipsing around love struck after a bunch of musicians as I may have been doing at sixteen.... They don't often drink, whereas nights out watching bands in dark bars were a regular occurrence by the time I was doing my A-Levels. Probably why I ballsed them up. I think the clamp down on underage drinking means it is no longer enough just to stick on a bit of extra make-up and flirt with the doorman to get into the pub.
What I think is brilliant is that she has lots of boys who are just mates. I went to an all girl school, and it took me a few years to view boys as anything other than a scary different species. Once I got over my fear it turned out I generally found them easier to get on with than girls. No bitchiness to contend with.
Anyway- I have pottered off topic- should I be up there instigating a one foot on the floor at all times policy? Or measuring distances between differing sexes with a ruler? Or should I just trust them?
I trust them. But I might just pop my frankly embarrassing 'cool and groovy mum' hat on and go and see if anyone wants a drink or something. Just as a polite hostess, not because I want an excuse to just make sure there is no hanky panky....
I am new to this teenage gathering lark, what would you do?
