I am really feeling taken advantage of lately. It seems that whenever I take my 13 year old daughter and her friends someplace I am constantly shelling out money. I understand that you extend the invite then you pay, but this is rediculous. If they just ask for a ride some place, for instance an outdoor shopping mall, my daughter expects me to buy food and drinks for all her buddies. I know these girls have money on them, but they hold on to it for more important things. I am so done with this. How do you handle the friends and money issue?Answer Question

Let your daughter be responsible for paying for her own, and then she'll realize that it's not always an option to pay for everyone. If she doesn't get an allowance, start one and let her know that she is responsible for paying for her own extras with that money. If you aren't paying for her snacks at the mall, then it would be really strange for the other girls to expect you to pay for theirs. It will also be a great learning experience for your daughter.
