So I would suggest supporting your daughter and maybe consider her point of view. He has what he wants or so we think a pretty girl and a baby. If she was 20 and you were 29 that would still be tough but it wouldn't be wrong. You do not have to answer her right away. My purpose is not to scare or alarm you but just to make sure you two are informed.
Well, first I'd like to start out by introducing myself. I know the boys mother but I have not met the boy. Also, when going abroad he'd be classed as a child and I would be an adult. But do know that he is a 17 year old, and when he hits that legal age for the first few years, shit usually hits the fan, and most guys like to be without tie downs in that period of their lives. I know that you probably trust her, but just let her know that even trustworthy people can get carried away sometimes. Imagine a 14 year old kissing and holding hands with a 7 year old.
I can't stand the way they talk about it. If they didn't care about you being involved, they would have made up some story and not even told you what they were doing. We've been texting a lot lately and we've hung out twice with a mutual friend. The real problem is that you are in two different places. I think it will be ok, or if you feel better ask her to find agroup of kids to go with so it's not just him and her. No matter what, you don't want her to start 'hiding' things from you. One thing I wanted to share was that at some point, one of my parents advised keeping an amount of money on me that would pay for a cab ride home whenever out on a date.
He may be upset with you but, better to do this than have him go to jail and live with it for the rest of his life just for dating someone two years younger than himself. I don't know what kind of kid I would have been if I felt that my parents could not even trust me to go to the movies? It bothers me that shes with a guy who is that old. They still need us to shield them from certain things. Kids will push whatever limits you put on them. Alone dates should be out of the question until she is older.
From what I've heard from kids alot of girls feel that they have to say yes when I boy asks them out, don't want to make the boy feel bad etc. My sister and I have talked about this so many times as adults and parents now, and that is what we have vowed to do for our kids. Especially if he was a high school kid. But don't generalize, and don't make unfounded accusations. At the age of 17 our brains aren't even matured enough yet to make that decision. And then today I read your request, I guess it is what moms go through.
I'd like the law to get changed so at least there's a lighter penalty when there's just a few years' age difference. Not everyone is going out at her age, and a movie is not necessarily the best place for a first date. It does remind me of how hard I tried during that era of my life to give my kids appropriate guidance without being too overbearing. I will not give you advice as I do not know your family, your values, nor do I understand your relationship with your daughter. But let her know you are always there for her. I come from a family of five girls,and while My sister may have been 16,and I a mere 14 I conducted myself,with more maturity than she did.
Today it looks like kids pretend differently and act cavalier and nonchalant about hooking up. We have found that most of her friends are doing this also. Many times, I think of course I'm not there yet so in ten years I may have to eat my words! Give her a little room to move but not too much. Your daughter still has 3 years and for a teenager, a lot happens in that time. . And mama's who have been wishy washy on what they plan to teach their kids about sex and waiting may find they want to take a more old fashioned approach after reading this book for the sake of their kids physical and mental well being.
Not only because of the taboo of a growing man trying to date a teenage girl. My mom let me and my sister pretty much do whatever we wanted. It's fast, simple and in many practice areas, it will be provided at no cost. Your instincts are right on this one. Additionally, no responses on this forum constitute legal advice, which must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case. Now we have cell phones and it's a different world, but still, it's important to be able to take care of yourself as opposed to calling for help. He still tried to take liberties with her! Maturity is a very different story, though.
They and all my friends parents all knew each other anyway. It will really open your eyes to the temptaions for sex out there that even us 30 somethings didn't have to deal with. She wont change her mind if your deep enough in the relationship to be thinking of marriage then its pretty much a given she loves you just as much if not more. I did have friends who had to sneak around all of the time and I just felt sorry for them and their parents, because those kids where wild and their parents didn't even know what was going on because their kids could not tell them anything. Being a product of my generation, I was thinking of not teaching my kids to wait until marriage because I didn't wait and how can I expect them to. Typically men go after much younger women because they are mentally very immature and women their own age don't have much in common with them.
