Should I control my daughter, when she goes out with some of her friends, which I think are not the best company for her?
I don't want to put too much pressure on her telling her what to do. She is only 16 and I'm afraid she will get hurt in some way.

Yes, you should control her. Your job as a parent is to make sure your kids grow up to be responsible adults. Yes, every parent should take their child's feelings into consideration but at the same time, if her feelings and her well being/future are at risk, I don't think anyone needs to tell you what to do. 

We all know that girls are the more emotionally unstable gender, its not news.  And its easier for them to keep a grudge than boys but still you do what is best for her, whether she knows it or not. Keep her away from bad influences and I assure you, she will thank you in the end.

As much as you want to give your daughter freedom, you also need to be on the lookout for her. No one would have her back the way you would.

In such cases where she's moving with company you feel are bad or not too healthy for her, you should call her attention to it. Make her realise the kind of person she is, the values you people share (especially at home) and dangers of moving with such friends.

Help her understand the consequences of moving with bad company. Be cool with her, smiles m ft

You don't have to control her, just give her some tips and advice.

Better to control her and be on the safe side, then regret it when it's too late.

I think you should pay attention, if you think she might be in potentially bad company.

It all comes down to what kind of a relationship you've built with your daughter. Do you trust eachother? Does she openly talk about her personal life with you? If she's totally fine discussing her life with you, you're lucky.

Just talk to her about your concerns, ask her about her opinion on important topics, give her some tips, talk to her about your own experience.

Give her advice rather than restrain her from something without explanation. If everything's well, she understands your concerns, she might still hang out with the "bad" kids but she has the brains and sense to not do anything bad herself.

Yes.

If I'm not mistaken, she is still a minor and inasmuch as you want her to know you love her, you have to really LOVE her.

Love is a decision, love is discipline and love confronts. While we are all about being friends with our children and creating a relationship which makes it easy for them to confide in us, we have to realize that it is our duty, our duty of love, to protect, train and guide them in the way we know is right.

Bear the brunt of her displeasure now and enjoy seeing her better life in future, or let things slide now and face her hatred later. There are many things that can go wrong with a bad friend as company. Too many bad things.

Love her, protect her.

Yes, you should control her.

I can not say that it is to control, rather it is to advise, to control your son or daughter, it will only end that your son or daughter ends up rebelling, because he thinks it is unfair, that for the simple fact that you are his father or mother you have the right to decide for him or her what is best.

The best thing you can teach your children is how to choose friends and even if you do not want your children to get hurt by their friends, it is necessary for human growth.
