  • No. One hour is not that far to drive.

  • No, the parents could always meet somewhere to pick up or drop off kids.

  • If boyfriend is downstairs and daughter upstairs with parents in between why not. You either trust them in your house or you don't. If you don't trust them in the house with an adult then how can you trust them out together with no adult around?

  • The two families should figure out what works for them and what they are & aren't willing to do.

  • Definitely not, unless you're all on board with becoming grandparents.

    Why does a 15 year old girl have a boyfriend that far away in the first place?

  • in TOTALLY different rooms...*maybe*
    I think it would depend on a few other things as well

    *I mean if they are going to get into that kind of trouble- they will do it, spending the night in the same house or not so...there's that...

  • This question leaves a bad taste in my mouth...
    Many men wouldn't question whether or not some teenage boy should be alone with his child. (because they were once teenage boys themselves)
    Many women wouldn't second guess their partners decision (especially after hearing the reasoning, which is often not that the male doesn't trust the daughter, but because the male understands how other males think)

    The screen name causes pause: is this one of the children in question attempting to undermine the authority of the father?
    or
    A mother in attempting to undermine the authority of the father?

  • Are you the boyfriend, the dad or the daughter?







    Because none of you would have any business being on this website.

  • It wouldn't fly at my house. That doesn't sound like an emergency reason to me.

  • When I was 18 my parents allowed my bf to stay overnight on the couch on the 2nd floor, my bedroom was on the 3rd floor above their room. He lived an hour away and did it several times. At 15? I don't think so. No reason he has to stay so late at night.
