My daughter became a stripper as soon
My daughter became a stripper as soon as she turned 18. She is almost 20 now. I didn't mind that she was doing it at a club because I did it myself when I was her age for a few years for many of the same reasons she is doing it now- money. When I met her dad...my ex...I stopped. For me it was just dancing/stripping but times have changed and so have attitudes I think and I am not sure what to do.
She started doing private type parties last summer, something I never did. I actually drove her to her first one but she has a girlfriend that sometimes she works with that drives her to most others since her license has been suspended.
The one I took her too was pretty normal. It was a birthday party for a man in his 30's hosted by his wife. There were mostly couples and I hung out in the kitchen drinking coffee for the hour we were there.
My problem is she asked me to take her to another one in 2 weeks because her friend is out of town. I've been driving her to her work for the last week. I think most of these private things are not like the first one however, at least not the ones she's been doing lately because she is more vague when telling me about what she is doing. Instead of wanting me to wait in the house with her this time she asked me just to drop her off and wait for her call to pick her up. She said it might be as long as 3 hours.
I know some may question the whole morality of my past and/or her present, but I worry about her safety. Last night I told her I didn't want her to go alone...couldn't she get another friend to at least be there with her but she refused. When I tried to insist I come in and stay in the house during her show (I have a pistol incease of trouble) she got a little upset and said she just needed the ride because she didn't like waiting on a taxi to come home. She now says she will take one there but still wants me to pick her up. I think she is doing more than just stripping.
I can't talk her out of going. It's not my place to since she is an adult, but I think I need to take her there and wait nearby if she won't let me stay in the house with her. Part of me wants to tell her she is on her own for all of it, but I don't feel I should be like that. Me seeing her nude is not her/my problem, but I'm not sure I would like to stay in the house anyway even if she allowed me too, but I think someone should be there for her just in case.
