Let her have the freedom she can handle. To insure a lifelong relationship you need to treat her with respect and let her go so she will want to be with you. I have 3 adult sons. We homeschooled and homeschooled kids mature quicker and are more responsible, in general. As teens I let them do things at different ages. My middle son was very responsible. When he was 16 I let him drive 3 hours from our house to IU to spend a week with his brother in the dorm. My rule with him was "don't do anything that could involve the police or the ER." He never did.
She may need more rules if she has done stupid stuff. Make sure she knows everything about getting pregnant and birth control. Foam with condoms boosts effectiveness up to 99%. Show her where to buy condoms and foam and tell her its ok for the girl to buy it. Kids have sex.
