Just don't underestimate the power of peer pressure. I always tell my sensitive ds to use me always as his excuse "My mom won't let me". It gives him/saves face when he knows it's something he does not want to see, but feels like he "should" because his friends want him there.
Me. With 1 spouse, 4 kids, 16 chickens, 74 matchbox cars, 968,562+ legos, a dishwasher waiting to be emptied, a washing machine waiting to be filled and a lost cup of tea in the house.
I think you did the right thing - showed her the preview, discussed possible problems, and let her decide.
Out of curiosity to Zebra15, why wouldn't you let even a 10-year-old be dropped of at a movie party? Is it specifically about being at a movie theater? Or the drop-off thing? Not trying to be argumentative, just wondering what potential problems you're seeing, as I've let my 8-year-old go to the movies with friends and haven't thought of anything to worry about.
