My DD has a close friend at school that I don't agree with her having. This is not the first time this has happened, but the others fizzled out on their own. I cannot control who she talks to at school, so I have tried to talk with her about the friends that she chooses, but she is still very naive about it. This girl seems nice, but I know her family (we all went to the same school and the whole family is this way) and they are very trashy, irresponsible people. The girl has even told me stories about her dad that make me cringe. I realize this girl did not choose her family and I shouldn't judge her for who they are, but I think that the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree in most cases. I feel bad for her, but I feel very strongly about this. My DD is having a bday party in about a month and I do not want this girl to be invited because I don't want to enable them to be friends. I think this may be unfair to ask of my DD because it is her party. Should I allow this girl to come? If not, what is a good way to handle it without making my DD resent me for it?
