This is an ongoing issue in our house, although since we voiced our opinions and concerns, she hasn't been able to date him. But, when she's 16 and can date, it seems clear that it will be him. She tends to compromise the morals and values we've taught her (be positive, accepting of all races, non-violent, not lazy, conscientious, not overly focused on a boy) in order to be accepted by him. This is very important to her, and she's said she'll do this the right way. I know she needs to make her own mistakes, but what, if anything would make you comfortable allowing your DD to have even the most limited access to dating a creep?
I need some concrete tips on how to both allow and discourage this at the same time...I think I'm going to go nuts!!
