The reason I ask is that my DS -15 yo- friends are very much themselves with me, and I encourage it, that way I know who they really are not just the "best behavior". Also they talk about EVERYTHING around and sometimes with me. My husband is uncomfortable with it, I never bring up inappropriate topics, but I do correct them or get in on the conversation if they are using "hallway facts" about sex, drugs, ect.. or if they are like bashing someone I will jump in with another side of possible reasons for whatever has them mad at that person.Answer Question

Some of my son's (13 yrs) friends think I'm the meanest mom in the world..I sent my son to boot camp. I enrolled him in the Young Marines. He's in there for character built up and leadership skills. My co-workers runs it. I've met some of his friends, but I haven't talked to them much. They don't really come over, but when they do come by I mess with my son or with them jokingly....They don't stay long to hang out. I know some have made comments that I don't look like his mom, but an older sister and that I'm hot....lol...I don't think so. Maybe thats why he doesn't like them over. They most go ride their bike around and hang out at the park.
I think it's a good idea that they can be around you and feel confortable talking to you.

my teens friends are always at our home and act as one of my children, (just much more respectful) I would not want it another way!
