My 17 old hangs out with kids younger than her. She will graduate in June. My my husband constantly argues with me over this. Why does she constantly hang out with kids younger than her? It's time to grow up and I have had several conversations with her regarding this baby thoughts or input would be great!

That does seem rather strange.

Does she have a sibling that age that she is very close to? An old friend of mine used to hang around with her younger sister when and her friends and her younger brother and his friends when she was a teenager. Her sister was two years her younger, and her brother was five or six years her younger. Her boyfriend (now her husband) is three years younger than her as well, and they've been together since she was 17.

I don't think you should try and force her to grow up, she'll do that in her own time.
