yes, I know his friends....when they start with crazy or bad peer pressure, I gently tell my son "In addition to a million other reasons...

This is why we homeschool."

We laugh about that all the time.

we are at the point where there friends never seem to have last names...um no way. So I made a spread sheet that says (printed out a couple of blank ones with headings):

 

which kid of mine..friends name and cell #...parents name and cell #...street address...house phone #

 

we fill it out for each friend before they can go and hang out...

Okay YOU LAUGH, but I needed it. Maybe I should market the darn thing!

know their friends.When they get old enough to get around on their own I have to know names and numbers or it is a no go.

I don't recall any instance where we have had to deal with "peer pressure" from any of either of our teen's friends.

Yes I make it my business to know as many friends as possible. The grid paper idea sounds really good, also.

Can't say that I know all of their social friends. My boys are very active in several groups. I know anyone they spend time with on a regular basis as well as the adults in thier groups.

I do, and they are a great bunch of kids. My kid is what you call a straight edge. She is stubborn like me and doesn't give into peer pressure.
