  • I do not have teens yet, but I think it would depend on the gift itself. My parents didn't care that a boyfriend bought me a $50 or even $100 necklace, but if he had given me a ring that would have been a different story.

  • Of course, he spent money on her. It would be rude not to accept it.

  • My dd is 5 and not allowed to have a boyfriend, but at the teen age you're talking about, I don't know. What is the gift priced at, who is the boy, how is their relationship, you know? I would probably talk about it with my husband and then both of us with her about it....

  • We have not yet faced this situation. It depends on the age of the teen, and the gift

  • My daughter is not allowed to date. She is 15. Nor is she allowed to have a boyfriend. She has the rest of her life to be a grown up . Highschool and College are for enjoying yourself and discovering yourself and your path.

  • I would want to know how much are we talking,, and how often? I would say constant showering of any gifts (no matter what the cost) would be a bit of a red flag, if we are talking for birthday, anniversary and it is less than $100 I wouldn't have too big of problem, but something very expensive like a computer, or jewelry,or a car would involve me having a talk with his parents.

  • My DD is 5 but I am don't think I would have a problem with it as long as there were not any expectations that go along with the gift. A promise or engagement ring in high school..... NO a necklace, sure
