    Do you try to manipulate your children's choice of friends?

    I have a friend that is VERY specific about the children she allows her kids to "hang" out with.  I allowed my children to pick their own friends, but did point out the better qualities in the friends that I was glad they were spending time with.  When there was someone I didn't like, I would be more likely to ask my child what they did like about this person.  I secretly was hoping I had overlooked something.  Overall it worked out well...they are adults and made it through the teen years relatively well!  What was/is your method??

    Sometimes parents must check and manipulate their children choice. As they are children so they can not be as mature as parents are. They can commit mistake in making friends. So it is parents' duty and responsibility to suggest them not to have friends like that (those can be harmful to them).
