yes CM I think you're right. I might just say "I don't really think it's a good idea to read this now, you will be able to enjoy it more when you are older". Glad you think I am not being OTT.
DD has read the Twilight books but I think BJD is a step too far at the moment. I haven't read the Twilight series but the films I have seen with DDs were....yawn...so boring I thought but nothing too inappropriate. My DD does dance classes with girls a few years older and I think she might be trying to keep up a bit plus I think a girl in her class has been reading this book or has been going on about the films because DD has asked to watch them.
I was quite shocked a couple of years ago when I bumped in to a mum I knew with her (then) Y7 DD at the supermarket. They had S** and the City DVD and snacks for a girly night in...
(the mum is a GP) it made me feel I must be pretty old fashioned. ** for mods not modesty
Belinda, how old are your girls? I am not against them moving on and I am fairly liberal. My brother has a lovely cafe next door to a body casting shop and opposite an "exotic" boutique
so they have not been totally shielded!!
(that's Brighton for you)
I just don't want the floodgates to open too soon if you know what I mean. I think there are younger teen and older teen suitable material though.
