Dear M Girl,
My best friend and I love to hang out at the pool during the summer and we want to be able to see each other during the school year because we go to different schools, but my mom won't let me hang out with her! She thinks my best friend is a very bad influence on me! How can I convince my mom that my best friend is not a bad influence on me? Please help!!!!
I know you may not understand why your mom says you two can't hang out, but she probably has a good reason. Sometimes our friends get caught up with the wrong crowd and your mom doesn't want you following in her footsteps. If you and your mom work together, you can probably make a difference to your BFF and prevent her from getting into serious trouble. Ask your mom if your BFF can come over to your house to hang out -- that way your mom could pop in and check on you occasionally. It might not seem like the perfect situation, but at least you'd get to spend time together during the school year. Let me know how it goes!
