Can YOU Choose Your Kids Friends?

When my daughter was 5, she made friends one afternoon with another little girl at the beach where we went for swimming lessons. The two girls were having such a good It, me that the mother invited Audrey to come home with them for lunch, and I said yes.

This is not good.

This is not good.

Two hours later, when I picked up Audrey at her new friend’s house, I had to step over garbage on the porch, and though it was a beautiful summer I found the girls in the living room, blankly watching a game show. The mother was busy yelling at an older child, while the father was yelling at the mother.
