Do you approve of all or most of your preteens/teens friends? If there's one you prefer they not be around, what do you do?

I strongly disliked her friends before she moved. I really like her new friends. They are always sleeping over and she actually is going to the beach this weekend with one of the girls. I like when they come over because I know they are staying out of trouble and I communicate with her friends parents which I think is important, that way we know that the girls are where they say they are lol.

David has never really been one to socalize much outside of school. The only friend he's ever had over was his girl friend and he's only gone to one other friends house and stayed over when he was much younger and in cub scouts. (They would sleep in tents in his frineds back yard LOL) so really the only way I know his friends in school is from what he tells me and from what I would read in texts when he have a phone (lost that due to issues. Any I have an issue with I talk to him about it to try to get him to see why I think that person is not a true friend etc. So far it's only been two people and it worked out ok...I think

Right now, in this age group there seems to be a lot of jealousy...DD went to the beach with Tori so now Zoe isn't talking to her

This is what we do too. I am adamant about knowing their friends parents and communicating with them. It makes a huge difference. It helps a lot that they go to a small private school so I know most of their classmates parents anyway. It's a pretty tight knit community because it's k-12 so the kids and their families grow up together.

We've had a few minor issues with friends displaying behavior I find inappropriate. My first response is always to talk to my daughter about it and ask her what she thinks of the behavior and why this person is a good friend. I try really hard not to be judgemental about it and to be open minded. I've learned that my girls are pretty good judges of character and most of the time I don't need to worry.

Ari has her BFF since kindg. that I adore. She's here often and Ari goes there. They have a couple other friends, one is rather obnoxious. But overall I like most of them.

They all have okay friends. Some have their own quirks, or family quirks which arent in line with what my husband and I value, but nothing harmful.
