We recently moved to a new nieghborhood that has a lot of children, but only one little girl who is the same age as my daughter. They are 4. She lives right nextdoor. It has come to my attention that her parents do things a bit different than us and pretty much let her do whatever she wants. So we made the rule that they can play outside together or in our house, but I didn't feel comfortable with her playing over there. 4 yolds need constant supervision... And although I know its a part of growing up, I find that my little one is picking up an awful lot from her. Suddenly yelling at me or flat out telling me NO which she has never done. I'm not sure how the best way to handle this is. I've explained that sometimes friends make choices that are not the best and that she has her own mind and has to choose what she feels is best. But its hard for her to understand. PLEASE HELP I'm at my breaking point :(Answer Question

I would limit her time with the friend. She is not of the age to make "appropriate" decisions without assistance.
