  • I was once the girl that hung out with the older guys. I didnt have sex until I was 18, but everyone thought I had. I had crushes on some of they guys, they were friends of my best friends older brother, they let us hang out with them. I would say if you trust her and him set rules and let them hang out he might be a good influence on her. I would have had sex before I turned 18 but the older guys I hung out with made it a point to say things like " girls should wait to be alittle older" and " no guy wanted to be with a baby" of course times have changed and so have boys. Unfortunately 14 isn't that young today. I hope this has helped in some way. Good luck.

  • I would not....unless the boy is gay. I guess I would be asking what the 17yr old is getting out of a friendship with a 14yr old girl. Big difference in life experience, likes, dislikes. Ask any man....he will tell you that from the time of puberty a man is always thinking of ways to have sex. Heck most of them will tell you they got into the career they are in because they thought they could meet girls that way.

  • Under what circumstances ? Because basically what do they have in common? whay do they want to spend time together at such age differences? Yes you want to keep the relationship well with your child and being trustworthy but really why so they want to hang out ? Just my opinion !

  • I would supervise her but let her hang out. You figure she will either do it and you know about it or behind your back. Have them hang out at your house supervised.

  • I say no. 2 years thats my limit. Why promote problems or trouble. At any teenage age you can have sexual issues and problems. But why bring it on home. Susan 262

  • I don't like the idea of my daughter hanging out with a 17yr old boy but there are a lot of things in this world I dont' like and really good friends are hard to come by. I would probably find out what it is that makes them want to hang out together and let them know your concerns. They are at an age where some straight talk might be what's needed. If you are concerned about them having sex you could find out what the age limits are on statutory rape for your state and let them know that it could be illegal for them to have that type of a relationship. There might not be a wrong or a right in this instance because whatever you decide you could get good or bad results. I think if you spoke to your daughter about your concerns and put some limits on the relationship you would have good results.

  • Its too much of an age difference in my opinion to let them hang out.They really don't have that much in common,friends, doing things, etc.But you are the Mom, its up to you
