Hi Everyone. My daughter turns 11 this upcoming week and has always wanted to "fit in". She tells her dad and I about all of the things her friends get to do and that she wants to be like them. We have tried explaining several times that she is wonderful and should be her own person and not follow others, etc, etc. But she still just wants to be like her friends. We are more strict parents and will not allow the things her friends do (heavy makeup, watching inappropriate movies and inappropriate music). Pretty much they all seem to do what they want. Need some advice from those of you that have gone through this. How do you get your child to not be a follower and be her own person???

I am in need of some help! I am having a hard time with my 12-year old (step) daughter. A little back story, I have been a part of her life going on seven years now. I have her and three younger daughters (we are a blended family: yours, mine and ours). I love my oldest very, very much, and she has been through a lot in her life. Her mother does not play an active role in her life...at all. No...
I was wondering if anyone could pry for my family to be reunited. I am a foster and just recenlt leared that we probley wont be and everyone tells me that theres no hope but I want to prove them wrong, I want to show them that there is always hope in God and he can do anything at any time.Thanks
