If you taught your daughter to know better, then I'm thinking part of it was definitely her responsibility- to remove herself from that situation or to at least call and clear it with you that she watch that movie. And I would definitely reconsider allowing her to stay over at that friend's house again. I don't know what sort of relationship you have with the other child's parents, but it is good to get to know what kind of people they are and if their standards for their kids are similar to yours. But sometimes, it's almost impossible to know what might happen there. You can only do the best you can and hope that everyone involved will make the right decisions.
i grew up watching the most violent movies. really it's up to the parents to police what the children watch.
The parents ... the children probally didn't relise how scary the movie was .... If my 13 year old has friends over and they want to watch horror movies I always make sure it's ok with the parents first .. and if the movie is pg or r rated i have to check it out first ...
It's just a movie, and it wasn't great but one of the better "Horrors" of the past few years. If she's is the sensitive type, she'll get over it in a few days.
Is she your only chid? First kid? Did you see the question where another mom was dealing with a pregnant 13 year old? What about the 13 yr old kid on here who is trying to kill his/herself? Thank God she only watched a scary movie. I have 3 kids of my own and fostered several of my cousins...you should just talk to her about it being a movie...and again be thankful it was a movie. I have a soon to be 13 year old boy and a 15 year old boy, who literally walked out on a scary movie and they were with me...the movie started and both were like really forget this I can't watch this and walked out. It was her choice to stay.
Parents. If I wasn't sure if the other parent would be ok with something, I would make my daughters friend call home to check.
I believe you should be mad with parents they should have informed you of them watching this movie so you had a say
Be thankful your daughter made you aware of the situation, maybe she is hoping that you will say something to her friends parents so that she will save face with her friends but not have to sit through a film like that again.
Thirteen is a tough age to parent. I'm speaking from my past experience as a defiant teenager, not a parent. At that age the responsibility is about 49% on the child and 51% on the adults.
parents ...hug your daughter and keep calm
