Social Dilemma-Should A Mom Be Able To Be With Their Child at the Dentist

Today's social dilemma has to do with parenting. Hi Jaime. I love your social dilemmas and I have one. At least I think I do. Please tell me if I’m overreacting. My daughter who is 17 had a dental appointment today for her 6-month cleaning / checkup. They refused to allow me to go in with my daughter, I had to wait outside. I explained she is a minor and should not be examined without me. They felt if there were any questions or problems, they would come outside to speak to me. 7 or 17 years old, to me does not make a difference. There are a lot of crazy and disturbed people out there and even a 17-year-old is just as vulnerable as a 7-year-old. I understand she will be 18 in a few months, but she did not feel comfortable. What would you do? Am I overreacting? Thanks Jaime ~ Carol I think this is a tough one. I do think 17 is old enough to go to the dentist without your mom, BUT if Carol's daughter really did want her mom in the room with her, than I think she should be able to be in there. 17 is still a minor. I don't know if there's a medical reason why the mom couldn't be in the room, but I doubt it. So again, if Carol's daughter really wanted her mom with her, then the dentist should have allowed it. What do you think? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
