What the Expert Says:

Are they laughing because they are afraid to say what you said--they may be inappropriate? Many families have different levels of tolerance for suggestive comments; however, if she is a teen, she does not deserve to be on the receiving end of uncomfortable words.  Speak to your friend yourself and tell him you find his comments uncomfortable.
