"Can I go to the park and hang out with (names 4 guys, including bf, and maybe one other girl) ?"? I don't really know the others very well, but do know the bf & he's fine, but you know~ I told her I wasn't comfortable with her "hanging out" with just a group of boys right now, especially since I don't know them well. I also told her she needs to be proactive in getting together with her original group of friends, instead of always getting together with the bf & his group. Everything in moderation. She's seen him at least 8 times at different get togethers at the movies, bowling, mall & parties since school let out. I've been extremely flexible with this new relationship, but have told her that there are certain things I'm not so comfortable with...I prefer group get togethers either here or the above mentioned places. She dug her heels in and told me I'm being prejudiced about boys, and treating her like she was still 10!!

I would let her go. My DD is 17 (just) and IMO the more you micro manage them, the more them may try to sneak around. Give some very specific guidelines about when she is to be home and if you want her to check in at a certain time. Good Luck, Mom. This is a hard one.
