  • im only 20 but i will say when i was 17 i lied to my mom and said i was staying the nite with a friend but the guy i was talkin to was up the street she knew about him and i told her they was going to drop me off at her house after graduation well i stayed and we started drinking he took advantage of me and took my virginty and i got pregnant too which sucked! But i think if my mom would have been more trusting and let me stay or what not it would have never got to where i had to sneak around and prob wouldnt have done any of the the drugs and drinking stuff. Good Luck and i dont think your a bad mother you trust your daughter and thats great =)

  • Ha, they are going to find a way to do it. I lied to my mom all the time.

  • No, them finding a way to sneak around is different than a mother approving of such behavior.

  • No

  • Nope. I don't have a daughter that old yet, but I wasn't allowed to go to his house. He was allowed to come to mine, but we were in separate rooms. Or my entire family would have a slumber party type thing in my living room.

  • Probably not

  • I would not allow it if I had a 17 yo DD, I know what I did at that age. Are you fighting with her about it, or did she actually ask your permission. If she asked, I'd say that's awesome! I don't know your daughter, but I just snuck out I never asked something like that lol I was terrible!

  • was just wondering, as Nickole23 said they will find a place to do it rather I like it or not. She tells me everything and I mean everything, she is on the pill, she came to me and I have always talked to her about the facts of life. She does not lie to me and is a great daughter. She gets straight A's in school. She did do the pot thing but let me know it was not for her, Thank god. Well I do allow her to stay only cause I'd rather her be in a house then in the street somewhere.........does that make me a bad mother?

  • Never in a million years. That is just begging for trouble.
