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???
