Question: pre-teen girlfriend always following my daughter

How should my 11 year old daughter handle a friend that has no other friends, follows her everywhere and talks bad about me (mom)? My daughter feels bad because she has no other friends but at the same time she is sick of her always following her.

She needs to be honest and tell her to stop following her and stop talking bad about others she really doesnt appreciate it. Maybe se will get the picture

Your daughter should make it clear, in not uncertain terms, that she will not tolerate anyone who talks badly about her mother. Also, she should not feel uncomfortable about letting someone know that she's not interested in such a close friendship.
