What a Day to be Alive!

Teenagers are usually very easy to please, we just want our phone, our space and our wifi. This time of year it’s even easier. As much as it might seem like a pain to buy for us, we usually don’t want anything except what is the latest trend. It’s simple, buy me what everyone wants or has and I’ll be happy.

However, today (Friday 12th December), it takes even less to make us happy. To put it simply, today is a day when we receive gifts from the people we love. Going out on a limb here I am going to say that nearly 80% of all teenagers have either read the Harry Potter series or listened to 5 Seconds of Summer. Some are like me and are in love with them both.

If you have even a mild interest in either, you’re in luck. If you completely obsess over one or both, then your world has just been complete. Today marks the day of the release of 5 Seconds of Summer’s latest album (yeah these albums are just dropping like flies, I love it!!!) and the first short story in the Harry Potter collection.

Livesos is the highly original (note the sarcasm) title of the album that has been released by 5 Seconds of Summer today. Incidentally, it is an album full of fan favourites played live by 5sos, hence the name. This is a perfect Christmas idea for all the teens who are in love with the Aussie band.

A few days ago, JK Rowling, world renowned author of the Harry Potter series, sent word that she would be releasing one short story a day from the 12th- 24th of December. These short stories would be centred around all the untold stories of the Harry Potter series. I know this doesn’t sound like such a big deal, but to every single Potterhead in the world, this is massive news.

I’ll write reviews for both the Livesos and Harry Potter short story once I have listened and read them both.

At what age is it appropriate to send my daughter to a concert on her own?

This is a tough question because there are so many circumstances surrounding it. Firstly, who is she going with? If you think the group of kids she is going with are responsible, then I think it goes along way to having a fun and enjoyable night. My concern then turns to how they are getting to and from the concert. Recently Ashlea was invited to see 5 seconds of summer with friends, She was so excited and I was too. It was to be her first real concert. When we talked about how they were getting to and from, I found out the other girls were catching public transport both ways (and this is at night). Unfortunately I was going out and was no available to help in the transportation. No way was my response. I wouldn’t catch public transport late at night without my husband or with a group of ADULTS. The concert itself may not be the issue. Find out all the details before committing. Natalie

The other day I was asked to go see one of my favourite bands in concert ( 5 Seconds of Summer) but decided not to go as I couldn’t catch public transport at night. I can’t tell you how much I wanted to see them but the dangers involved in catching the train at night are too big over people who will come back in a few months. I think that there really isn’t an age restriction, obviously don’t send your three-year old daughter out alone but once your daughter becomes a teenager, trust her to do her own thing. Take into account how responsible she has proved to be and her safety of the night/day. Ashlea
