Your daughter needs good friends because good friends can insulate her from bad choices.
It is at least one of the ways she can be protected from herself.
For what are friends if they do not both allow us to be a better version of ourselves?
This is especially important for girls, where relationships are everything.
Expression, influence, and security are three of the most important rewards that a group of friends can offer a girl. They help her become. They free her to be more of who God is creating her to be.
