  • I think you should talk to her, let her know your feelings but dont get angry, that will make her rebel. My cousin was in a relationship when she was 14 and he was 17, they had sex after three weeks, he pressured her into by telling her he loved her, and they were going to be together, after that she lost her self esteem and he started to control her. Her parents tried to get them to break up but she kept dating him without them knowing. Its a scary thought but she needs to have your support, not criticism, try to remember how your emotions were when you were 15 and relate to her as a sister not a mother, i think you will get better results. Good luck!!

  • Please be careful!! When I was her age I also dated a guy that age. And he ended up raping me... I was so naive and innocent that I didn't think anything of us going to his house to "meet his mom". I wouldn't allow that to go on AT ALL!!

  • umm hun im sorry to break the news but they already had sex...i was with an 18 year ols when i was 15 and have seen these relationships often (im only 17) her lying about his age kinda gives it away and those relationships are no good stop it he is just using her

  • He probably has been telling her all kinds of things - how much he loves her and so on. One thing you need to do is have a talk with him - tell him you know he is 18 and if he doesn't break it off with her in a way that she won't know he was made to by you, that you will contact the law. Then you need to be there for your sister because she probably really beleives that he loves her and thinks that she is in love with him. That is such a hard age - I have two teen girls and became a mom just after I turned 17. I tell my girls all the time in a non-lecturing way about all the diseases that they can get - without hiding the nasty details. I also tell them about guys telling them things just to get them to have sex.

  • put her on the pill, even if she says she is not having sex

  • I have always dated older men and I've never had a bad or scary situation arise from it. I think you really have to look at the type of person he is, what they have in common, how he behaves, is he respectful, his lifestyle, that sort of thing. If they're both still in school, they probably do have somethings in common but that doesn't mean you shouldn't fully screen him the way you would any other date.

  • I wouldnt allow a 14 year old to date at all. Thats too young, IMO
