I am finding more difficulty in entertaining my 13 year old. We do a lot of mother/daughter things. However, I am aware that she wants to include her friends. I find that difficulty to do. I do not like sharing her with her friends. I do not like entertaining other teenages that lack the moral and manners she has. I can't say anything because she than thinks I am a mean and picky mom. Therefore, I do not like the middle friend. If she desires to hang with her friend, than I just find me a seat along with a great book to read while they are socializing and having fun. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this type of behavior? Am I too clingy of a mom?
