I have a 15 yr. old son with a 16 yr. old girlfriend. They have been together for almost a year. There have been occasions where we are having a cook-out, pool party, bon fires and the evening ends late. Her own mother has mentioned that she could just 'stay' instead of one of us having to get her home. I've considered this and my Husband thinks it would be ok. They both are good students and respectable. I know that 'things' could happen, even if she never spent the night. But I am not sure on this one. This summer she is going on vacation with my son and his father for a week. Her parents have approved. I didn't have any say in it because it is his fathers decision... but I am nervous about that too. Advise?Answer Question

Hell No! My daughter would not be going on Vacation with her boyfriend, and my Son would not be allowed to take his girlfriend. 15, 16, 17 is too young for that kind of crap. And I'd be damned if my husband allowed one to go with them. The older ones might not be my bio kids, but they are my kids, we still both need to agree on what they can and can not do. Casue guess what, if one of them gets hurt, pregnant or worse, I am the one to take care of them.

Two thoughts, 1- if they are determined to have sex they will do it anywhere anytime they can weather she spends the night or not. 2- my dad used to let my (now DH) boyfriend spend the night on the couch with me in my bedroom, dads room was between us, we still did it because my dad was a heavy sleeper. So I don't know, my son is 16 and his GF is 17, and I trust them more at her house because her parents watch them like a hawk, this girl even has cameras at her doors and in the house, they know what happens ALL THE TIME, I on the other hand let them hang in his room but make them keep his door cracked about 4 inches and periodically check on them and his bedroom is on the main floor of the house, but I think if they were going to try something it would be more likely to be here than at her house.
Bottom line is teens are going to do it if they really want to but spending the night could be more temptation.
