My 15 yr old daughter announced to me three days ago she has been seeing a 16 yr old black male from school, she is white.
She admits this has been going on for 3 months.
First she is 15. Second this has been hard for us to accept. Please think in line of your child. We are not raciest, we have many friends that are in interracial marraiges and they are wonderful people, we even have an aunt married to a black man, and we all love him very much.
So we asked a friend of ours who is black preacher why would this bother us so much, he was very comforting and assured us that it probably comes from us including him being in our 40's and times have changed, but then why does it not bother us with others, he then said that he believes because it hit in our home and even he hopes his children find their relationships to be with black he said it is not that we dont love all it is just something we as parents seem to want of our age

Don't make something out of nothing. If you say you are not racist then stand by that and don't give her a hard time because of it. If he is a good kid and treats your daughter well then you need to get over your generations engrained response. If you get on her case for this she may see you as a hypocrite and not trust you anymore. Then things will truly be bad because you could very well lose your daughter. I suggest trying to spend more time around them/him. Getting to know him will probably wash away your uneasiness.

I'm sorry but I don't think I understand.. are you saying her friends are rejecting her because of her boyfriend? If they are then they are not very good friends and good riddance. BUT I understand she would be hurt by that and it wouldn't easy. Of course it won't be easy for you to watch happen either. You can't control others' ignorance unfortunately. The best you can do is be there for her if this should happen. Heartache is a part of life, I wish we could keep our children from it but eventually they have to face it. Better with you by her side then out on her own.
