Teenager is hanging out with the wrong crowd. Should I intervene?
16 year old has always tended to have questionable friends. But now I am worried because one just stole a car and some money from someone else in our town. Things have got to change. I know if I tell her she can’t hang out with this group that she will rebel. Should I say something to her?
This is difficult. As you say, telling her will likely push her to hang out with them even more. Is it possible to have a talk with her and tell her you are worried about the choices they are making and the effects it could have on her life?
