I'm always talking to her about choosing her friends wisely. To be careful and it's always good to stand back and watch some of the actions and conversations of others. To be very selective as to who she allows in her social circle, but sometimes she tells me that I'm not allowing her to choose. She says that I have to allow her to use what she's been hearing from me. Am I just being a bit over protective or should I be overly concerned?Answer Question

We handled it by allowing our children to bring any of their friends to our house to hang out, watch movies or whatever. We even provided snacks. What we found was that the friends who were up to no good didn't hang around for very long once they saw our children were not going to be allowed to run to the places they wanted to go. It worked beautifully for us because we never had to eliminate a single friend. They eliminated themselves, and our children were able to see it for what it was. I'm pretty sure they are handling it the same way. It may be a bit inconvenient to have extra children around, but in the end, it will be worth your trouble.
