I wasted a lot of time dating and if i could go back i would focus on my friends and school work. My son is very immature and is not even supporting himself. My daughter will be 17 next week and just finished her jr. Very wise & mature! thank you for standing up for your beliefs & being a great example to other young girls.
Advice for parents with teenage daughters
A degree of secretiveness is normal at this age. Should i confront his parents? For example, minors may be less likely than adults to understand sexually transmitted diseases, have access to contraception, and have the resources to raise a child if they become pregnant.
Really you just need to talk to her, but be positive when you do while also letting her know you are uncomfortable with this situation. Second, help her to understand deeply that she alone can decide if she is consenting in consensual safe sex. State that you anticipated anger and you want to give her space to be mad and to express herself more, as well.
We get so swayed by their mood swings and intense reactions to us that we forget to see them in the context of their own development. She is allowed to date him like she would be allowed to date a boy her own age (he can come over here or we will drive her to the movies) but that’s it. Getty images.
Assuming she’s not pregnant (she says they used condoms), what’s the next step we should take? And our own values, fears, and experiences than with the values, wants, and needs of our loved ones. I feel defeated and need help on how to have her be accountable and respectful.
How can i earn points?
Do you think i should get involved? A month later, her mother drove her to our town and rented a hotel room where my son stayed with them for the weekend. Are a time of difficult communication, when it’s normal for teens to challenge parents and resist authority.
Daddy was extremely strict,and i suppose,all of us girls understood to a point as to why. I was devastated as it was the end of my senior year of hs. No closed doors, no under blankets, no being here together when i am not home. Com is the world’s largest online destination for care. I did a lot of things with them and let her have him come along places. Show her that you trust that she will make good decisions on her own.

I’m afraid he’s getting trapped in a destructive relationship. Unless your daughter is hanging out with someone who is actually a true danger to her life, remember that you cannot really control who she is or isn’t involved with.
Help my teenage daughter is dating someone twice her age!!
So be involved to the extent that both you and his father are beyond clear that you expect him to be respectful (in person, online, or while texting) toward anyone he dates. Next question in. But mainly, they need to know that we “trust” them, and respect them too.
