BFF dilemma: My mom hates my buds!

My mom thinks all my friends are bad examples. How can I make her see that they’re good people?

 

“Try to see your mom’s point of view, and consider making a few friends outside of your group. Get to know some new girls, and learn to have good times with old and new friends!”  —Katherine, 13

 

“See if you can invite the friend she thinks is trouble over along with her mom. Talk about rules and boundaries, and get to know them. Hopefully, your mom will let you hang out with all your friends again.” —Emily, 11

 

“Respect your mom’s opinion, but talk to her. Let her talk, too, and don’t interrupt. After she is done, say, “If you got to know them you would see that they are good friends.” Your Mom ought to be happy that you want her to meet your buds.” —Austyn, 12

 

“Let Mom know the mistakes you make are your mistakes. Once she sees that you want to stick to your values, she’ll trust you and not blame your friends for your bad decisions. She worries because she cares for you and your safety.” —Lauren, 15

 

“Have your friends over, and prove to your mom that your girls aren’t that bad. Try to include your mom in the activities you and your friends do. Moms love makeovers, facials, manicures and karaoke, too!” —Natoshia, 11

 

Now it’s your turn to help a GL reader: What would YOU do if your mom hated your buds?
