My friend guy friend just turned 29, had his kids very young and has been raising them on his own the last 5 years. I have helped out with the kids a lot. His 12 year old daughter came to me and said she really likes this boy and wants to go out with me, but her dad won't let her date.
She is asking well begging actually that I cover for her and tell her dad shes staying at my house this weekend so she can go out with this boy. It's just a date to the movies. I'm a bit torn, she trusts me and I hate to break that, plus my friend may be overreacting to a little date. What would you guys do? Thoughts? Cover for the kid, tell your friend?

I think you need to respect her father's wishes, teaching her its okay to sneak behind her parents back is not a good idea. I would talk to her father about it, however like others have said; she's 12, there is no need for a one on one date. A group of friends going to the movies is one thing, but a 12 yr old girl wanting to sneak behind her father's back to go on a date with a "boyfriend" is concerning to me. I couldn't in good conscious agree to that.

Next question overall
Will your husband/ SO have sex with you while you are on your period?
