Times are changing and girls want more freedom. You would have probably noted this--- your teenage daughter who has just entered puberty is becoming interested in opposite sex, wants to spend time with her friends, go for movies, lunches, dinners and even party.
In Indian society you are worried about it like--- Is it right? Should you let her go or discourage her? In India we give freedom to boys and let them go out and have a nice time. But girls are expected to stay at home as there are different set of rules, regulations and traditions for them.
As a parent you can let your daughter go out occasionally or discourage her totally. But with changing times it is important you change your thought process and provide her with some freedom.
Some reasons why you should loosen up as a parent, and let your teenage daughter go for occasional movie and party with friends.
Let your daughter have the fun of growing up. Let her learn to strike a balance between home-work, grades and social life. Teach her right from wrong, and let her make her own decisions as small mistakes now will probably make her a more mature and responsible individual in future.
