Shes going to seventh grade and says she wants to hang out with 17 year olds because a few other girls hang out with high schoolers. should I just let her? Or should I tell her that my decision as a mom is a no? 17 is way older than 12 yr olds, and theres no specific reason of why she wants to be hanging out with them. I dont know who they are, but i've seen them before. I saw how they dressed, and im not sure if my kid is safe with them. Any advice?????

Get to know the people your child wants to hang out w/ as individuals and don't make a decision simply based on age. You have brought this topic up several times in different ways and different forums (as has her 'friend')... and I'm really not sure what exactly you are looking for.
