My first concert was Oz Fest. I was definitely not mentally prepared for I saw at that concert.
When my teen was going to her first, we’ll say grown up concert.” She’s been to concerts like Selena Gomez, but that’s a kiddie, preteen concert, and absolutely nothing like the Wiz Khalifa / Fall Out Boy concert that she will be attending today.
I tried to prepare her for what she would see, and of course because she is a teen everything I say goes in one ear and right out the other, because she knows all about how concerts really are. I tried telling her that she will see people doing and selling drugs at this concert. She says no mom this is not that kind of concert. I tried telling her that people will probably sneak in weapons either knives or guns or both, and once again I was told no mom it’s not that kind of concert. I tried informing her that there will be the occasional person walking around half-naked with body paint on, and she will most likely see people making out or having sex on the field, but once again teen knows best.
I thought it would be interesting to see what she has to say after the concert. She did tell me much about it other than she had a great time.
What was your first concert experience? Did you let your teen attend any concerts yet, if so what was his/her experience?
