Daughter in tears because it’s ended.

Just found dd 12 sobbing in her bedroom telling me she’s lonely and all her favourite tv programmes and YouTube favourites have finished. I would usually tell her to get a grip but I know it’s her way of reacting right now and so I’m taking her tears seriously.

She’s a huge fan of Ariana Grande so loved Sam and Cat. She’s also loved watching Xfactor and also Dancing Mums on YouTube (she’s a massive dance fan).

Anything else I can introduce her to - similar kinds of things. Either tv or YouTube. She often gets attached to a character and I think she’s just struggling with no role model on tv and never seeing her friends at the moment.

Any ideas for me to cheer her up? I do understand - I used to adore Fame and looked forward to the new episode every single week 😁

I loved the Greatest Dancer on BBC1 and I'm old! Did she see it? It was lovely.

What about the film Flashdance? Another favourite of mine about a dancer.

Merlin on Netflix

Yes, Merlin is amazing. I didn't know it was on Netflix but have seen it has been on TV recently.

Does your daughter enjoy drama series?

Icarly? And Victorious? Both Sam and Cat come from those shows. Otherwise Gilmore Girls?

Zombiemama Sat 16-Jan-21 20:43:11

Victorious on Netflix has Adrian Grande as Cat also. I think it's set before Sam and Cat

What about Enola Holmes? That was really good on Netflix.

Has she watched Victorious with Ariana Grande in ? My daughter liked I Carly, Austin & Ally, Good Luck Charlie at the age of 12.

The next step is something my teenage dancing daughter liked. More the early series than the later ones though she still watched them all.

@Ridiculousbutreal Recommendations from another huge fan of Sam and Cat:

Victorious (Ariana Grande in it too)
Suite life of Zach and Cody
Henry Danger
Umbrella Academy (rated 15 so have a look first!)

Hannah Montana on Disney plus if you have it?

Bohoboo Sat 16-Jan-21 20:47:20

Find me in Paris is a ballet school based time travelling series on cbbc that both my dds 13 and 11 like lots

The Voice, Dancing on Ice, Strictly Come Dancing might be available on iPlayer . Thay had a couple of very young contestants this year so it might appeal to her.

Nutrigrainygoodness Sat 16-Jan-21 20:48:01

Has she watched Victorious?
Alexa and Katie on Netflix (not singing/dancing) but a good show- me and dd have watched a season in the last 2 days 😳.
The next step on BBC/Netflix
Backstage- dd says that's on sky somewhere (she's very helpful) 😂

DesdemonaDryEyes Sat 16-Jan-21 20:49:13

Any of the old stuff around? Hannah Montana? High School Musical. The Narnia stuff?

Catty1720 Sat 16-Jan-21 20:55:25

Glow up is good it’s make up artists competing but this may be abit too old for her so you might want to check first like X factor but make up I watched it with my niece (13 yrs old)then we did the creative challenge afterwards mood boards and make up sorry if it’s not what you were thinking

There's are lots of old series of American Idol - generally packed with really talented singers and lots of musical genres. So many famous singers started there.
