Momof2kids Posted July 3, 2008 Share Posted July 3, 2008 My dd 11 is so into Hannah Montanna. We don't even have cable!!! She is always singing HM and prancing around pretending to be her. Right now she and a friend are practcing for their "concert" and they want me to come see it. I really don't want to!!!! I would like dd to focus on something more important - like reading and learning something new!! She has a very good talent (I don't want to say what it is now for fear of someone figuring out who we are) and has had another adult in this field tell her she has a future in this area/business and currently she is volunteering to help out and she may even be able to be on their staff when she is older. Basically she has been singled out and is going to be "developed" in a particular area for the future. I can't stand the singing anymore. There's Hannah Montanna singing. There's Wicked singing. I HATE the Wicked songs. They are awful to me. Too much screetching! Then dd took a break from Hannah and got into the Christian group Pure NRG. Again, 2 little bouncy pop singing girls and boy. What's with all this "pop"???!! I can't stand it! Tell me anyone who has seen this fizzle out with theri dd. WILL it fizzle out?? What's hard is that my dd CAN sing and she is very pretty. I don't want to stifle her music and singing for her but why not something other than this teen-pop??? It's not like I don't think there's some catchy songs. I can get into it a little. But now I am overloaded and I want my dd to faze out of this. Will she? When I was young I wanted to be Pat Benatar and I pranced around like her in black spandex pants. I grew out of it. The difference is I could never sing like Pat but my dd CAN sing like Hannah Montanna. It scares me. I am having a hard time dealing with "reality" and "dreaming" when it comes to music/singing. I don't want to squelch her dreams, but I don't want to spend my life nurturing this either, when she has so many other things *I* think she should be doing.
