I need help with my 15 year old daughter. She goes to her friends houses, but will not invite them to our house. The house is clean enough, so that's not the problem. She just says she doesn't want to be here, she would rather be there (their houses). It's becoming more of a problem now because she has 2 male friends. They are both 17. She goes to one of their houses frequently, and the other occassionally. The occassional one she used to be sort of boyfriend/girlfriend with. The frequent one, he is "in love" with her but she just wants to be friends. The first guy, I met one time and that was almost a year ago. The second guy I met for 10 seconds once. That's the one she goes to almost every day now. Just to clarify, she also doesn't bring her girlfriends here. She only has 2 close girlfriends, but she doesn't bring them here. Now for the question - should I insist on her occassionally bringing the male friends here? If so, then how often? Should it be 50/50? I at least want to have one conversation with the second guy, since she practically lives at his house now.
