Hi everyone I am a mother to a 13 year old daughter. She is my only child and we are very close and have a good relationship. She's a good kid and a typical teenager. She's mature responsible respectful caring,makes good decisions, well mannered and gets good grades. Now don't get me wrong I am not one of them parents that believe my child is perfect and does no wrong. Trust me I know she is not. She has her days. At times she can be stubborn spoiled rude have an attitude argue not listen and be moody. I do have lots of trust in her though. With all that being said yesterday we were talking and she told me that one of her good friends was pregnant. (this girl is also 13) I have always spoken with my daughter about the seriousness and consequences of having sex leading to pregnancy and std's also at her age sex shouldn't even be thought of. However after knowing that her friend was pregnant I felt we should have this talk again. While we were talking I asked her if she is sexually active. She told me she was a virgin and that she didn't want or think about having sex. I do believe she is telling me the truth she has never broken our trust. I know that I could just be naive but she shows no signs of having or wanting a boyfriend. After speaking with my daughter I told her that she is not allowed to hang out with her friend anymore. My daughter said mom that is wrong we are friends. She already is going to lose all of her friends and everyone is being mean to her. She said some girls made a facebook about this girl and that everyone is posting awful stuff. Then she said I like her and im not gonna stop being her friend because she is pregnant that is being fake So my question is do you think it is wrong of me to stop them from hanging out. Thank you to all who can offer me advise.
