Looking back at the teen years (for you parents of adults now), can I ask if anyone has had a postive/successful outcome after refusing to allow their teen date someone (for example, lockdown for months so they can't go out with a bad boy)?
I have had a problem with a young teen dating a bad boy and most times people advise NOT to forbid such relationships except in extreme circumstances. Even in extreme circumstances, parents who do this seem to be in a never ending spiral of keeping their kids under control while the attaction to the bad boy just goes on and on.
On the other hand, does anyone have experience in accepting their teens wild choices of people to date and did the attraction really fizzle out perhaps due to the fact that you didn't make the bad boy "forbiden fruit"?
