Savanna has reached that age of peer influence. I find I am that parent who's child is the only one that does not have this or that item that everyone else in the class enjoys. In this case, Pokemon Go.
Savanna has been into Pokemon for quite a few years now. She has the cards and battles with them. She has shirts, stuffed animals, pencils and paraphernalia. She watches the movies and TV shows. I send my bestie Ashely money once in a blue moon to pick up cool Pokemon things in Japan. She is utterly Pokemon spoiled.
I just can't let her play the game.
I have limited data that I squeak by with each month as it is.
I have a paranoia about turning on my location services.
I tried to download it once for her to try and it froze up my phone several times before the game even popped up.
It just isn't working for me.
And last night she cried. She never cries about things like that. But through tears she told me how all her friends talk about it and she feels left out. How she really isn't even interested in the game but only wants to play because everyone else does.
And I found myself telling her that unfortunately, this won't be the last time that she feels this way.
It was one of those moments that is a shock to my system. Where I realize very clearly that she has grown into the next phase closer to being a teenager. When previously she could care less what was popular or in style. She wants to fit in. And I am in the way of that.
It is what it is.
What was the one thing you had to have in school that everyone else was sporting? Or place everyone was going, or thing everyone was doing? It was cell phones in high school and college for me. I was only allowed to have a pager or phone cards. I didn't get my first cell phone until I got my first job as a teacher. The Nextel walkie-talkie. Remember those?
