Today’s OPP is from Gina:


Yi, one of my daughter’s favorite EDM artists is coming this summer and she really wants to go. Two of her friends already have tickets and she asked me if it would be okay if she went. She’s 16 and never been to a concert, let alone a concert by herself. I went to my first concert to see Paula Abdul when I was 17, so I remember how bad I wanted to go when I was her age. I can’t take her because of prior commitments and I think I would probably let her go if it was someone else. I feel like I would be giving her the okay to go and dress slutty and do drugs if she goes to an EDM concert. I’m torn because I know she has to experience life, but I think it would be too much for her first time. What should I do?



What advice do you have for Gina?
