I need your input! My daughter, who will be 14 in November, is struggling with peer pressure. Horribly. The dark makeup and clothing is now gone, and she's OK with that...she just wore it because everyone else did. No deeper meaning there, thank goodness. However, she is struggling with being influenced by how her friends act...language, attitude, etc. Last night she said she needed to change friends...so grown-up of her, I was surprised. She went forward two weeks ago, but now there is a question as to whether that was to get back in our good graces and reduce grounding (hubby sat down with her last week and said that just as Jesus forgave us he (hubby) forgave her for her actions...kept a little bit of grounding because she still needed to learn a lesson...really saw Christ in him that night!). She said that was a horrible thought, but we still told her that if she was serious about it that she needed to come to us and pray with us to again ask Jesus into her heart. I'm pretty sure that's going to happen before the pastor comes over Sunday to discuss baptism. Anyway, any words of advice? What else can I say to her to let her know that it's OK to be herself instead of like everyone else? She is beautiful, gets good grades, and really is a good girl...was this a typical teenage struggle for any of you? I would so much like to hear from you about your struggles and how you dealt with them. I want to help her so much, but ultimately she's the one who can help herself...well, she and God. I'm rambling. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
