      My daughter Samantha will be 10 in a month. She has a few friends who I honestly dont want her to hang around with. One has no friends..her mother has even told me this..she always tells Sammi she wont be her friend unless she does things for her. I have told her thats not what a true friend is. She has been here and OMG is just very ruid. When I tell her to do or not to do things is ALWAYS..Why? I can do it at my house"..has no respect for authority and she eats like mad!!
      Another girl is pretty nice but tries to come between Samantha and some of her friends AND she comes from a family who does not take care of her at all!! She never goes anywhere with a combed hair (remember on SNL Rosanna Rosanna Danna? This kids hair is soo like that). She has told me all of her 7 cats have fleas and she has fleas. I just want to give this kid a bath! She always has the same clothes on..always dirty. I obviously blame her parents.

      Where do you draw the line? tongue out

        • Your daughter is only 10, you still have say on who you will allow her to associate with.  Make a point to make your daughter see what you don’t like about her friends, but in a nice way. Avoid saying negative things.   And tell her what you would like for her to look for when she makes friends.  Like having the same values as the ones you have for your family.. and so on.
