I seem to have issues with my sons dating, I feel like they are mine and you girls need to stay away.... I Think i feel like the GF's or taking them away from me, They are 18 and 16, On the other hand i feel like this is normal and i have to get over it... With my daughters they are still l to young so im really not there yet.
I understand. It's a pretty big transition. You're not alone in feeling like this. What matters is how you handle these feelings. It certainly sounds like you're not going to let those feelings get in the way of your sons' happiness or development, you're just acknowledging how you feel.

I think at that age you have to be support of their desire to date, while being there for them when they need you. You can't keep them little forever and if you try they are likely to resent it. They are teens and probably don't wan to spend all of their evenings at home with mom. Relish the time you have with them, but give them room to grow.
