Namechanged for another post, but can't be arsed changing back.

I've just had a facebook conversation with DD, who's upstairs grin asking me whether she can go on a camping trip.... overnight.... in a couple of weeks with the gang of kids she knocks about with.

I am showing you the FB convo, partly because I am grin about it, and partly because I am shock about it

Her: oh yeah, sorry. right ok ive been invited to a camping trip with everyone. On the 22nd till the 23rd. And i know i asked a while ago, but you said "Ask me when your older". And i know you probably thought i never would, but sorry.

Me: Who is going? Who are you sharing a tent with? Where is it, and how are you getting there?

Her: Me, H, J, D, C, maybe C. Sharing a tent with the girls. Not decided on where it is yet. betweent wo local places. Getting dropped off or walking if its the second option

Me: Is there drink? Do any of you fancy each other? Tell me the truth.

Her: oh my god. no and no. except H and C.
and if there is drink, they havent told me and i wont be having any as i look like a fool. and it tastes rank

WWYD? She's a really sensible kid, trustworthy and I'm very proud of her. But is she too young? Is there going to be shenanigans?

She's 16 in November.

ProperStumped, is it worth pointing out news stories about parties like this that have got out of hand? Like one in North Wales recently
www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/six-arrested-after-100-gatecrash-4307909

Can she be sure every one of the 100 people (and the rest) who are going to the party will behave themselves? Does she really want to be involved if the house gets trashed, or someone is attacked?

It's not easy, is it? My sympathies.

EXACTLY WHAT YOU BOTH SAID!!

She's so naive. I'm glad she is, in a way, but she hasn't got a clue what goes on. Getting spiked is my worst fear for her. Anything could happen. That shit gets out of control, I can remember it well grin

I just feel sorry for her. She's gutted, and she's a good kid and I can't let her go. Obviously I'm not going to change my mind, and she's just going to have to suck it up - and that is craperoo at that age. At any age actually!

I know, exotic If I knew them, I would tell them. I cannot imagine coming home to something like that, I would hit the roof angry

Little shits. Teenagers though, innit. I'm just really glad it's not mine. Yet wink

You have to hope that they are not naive enough to put it on FB.
