  • I think it would depend upon whether or not her parents are home and supervising them. If they are home and don't have a problem with him being there, I would probably let him go for an agreed upon amount of time. Maybe you could call the parents and discuss it with them first? I agree with the group going to the show. But in my opinion, if you don't let him see her, it will make him want to even more.

    My parents always told me no about going somewhere and with whom I wanted to go with. I did it anyway, behind their backs. I spent more time sneaking out as a kid than anything else! If they'd just let me have some freedom, I would have respected the boundaries. As long as they are supervised by adults, I don't see why it would be a problem.

  • I think your being a responsible parent by not letting them be alone thus far. 14... hes soooo at that age. It's gonna happen but if you haven't had the talk I would say you should probably get on that. Good luck.

  • Ask him if he wants to be friends with STDs, pregnancy, HIV and AIDS.......... he should be staying home.

  • My youngest son who is 13 goes to his friends house usually with a friend or 2 and they hang out, sometimes you have to let them go and trust them, everytime my son says he is going to his g/f house (her mother is there) i drop him off and tell him to act like a gentlemen and he always says i know mom, sometimes he beats me to the punch and tells me yeah i know act like a gentlemen..but i trust my son and what makes things easier is me and my sons have a open communication where they tell me everything, sometimes too much info that i dont need to know but at least they know i am there for them without judgement..sometimes its all about trusting them
