My SD will be 13 shortly and has had issues with keeping friends. DH and I have seen first hand how she treats her friends and are not surprised she has this trouble. We have tried talking to her about it but it does no good.
SD has made a friend recently and I am concerned about SD's decision making while around this girl. This girl wears a lot of black including a lot of black eye make up. While I think it is fine for her if her parents are okay with it we do not believe SD should be wearing make up and do not allow it at this time. She also never had any interest in black make up until this girl came along. SD was allowed to go to a church event with this girl over the weekend and when she got home she was wearing the black make up. I told her that I was disappointed that the second time she was around this girl outside of school she is doing things she knows we do not find acceptable. I get that it was make up but I am worried that it is make up now and will be something more serious in the future. To me this isn't necessarily an issue with the friend but more with SD and how she navigates friendships and peer pressure.
