I have a 14 year old that is hanging out with friends from elementry. They are now teenagers and I dont like some of their actions and the direction they are headed. I really want to redirect her to some of the old friends that have branched off from this group and are making good decisions. I dont want her to feel Im controling her but I want her to get away from these girls or just not hang out with them as much.
I have encouraged her to start inviting them over and she has. They hang out but she ends up hanging out again with the other girls. I dont know how to make it happen. I dont know if I should completly say no and forbit the other girls from coming over. The girls are not so completly bad but I can see where they are going. They are 14 and its not too late to change some things. I feel like Ive already made some mistakes and need to make sure I dont make anymore.
