Is it wrong to allow my daughter to spend a few days with her bf

she is 18 and he is 19 and in a few months she will be on her own anyway so I don't see the big deal.
She is a good kid who is honest with me about everything and tells me he is the first guy who isn't all over her and he is the first guy to treat her with respect. So that helps in my decision as well.

  • She's an adult. She was honest with you about where she'll be. You've covered your bases on being sexually active with her. I think it's perfectly fine to let her!

  • She's an adult. if something happens,she's legally responsible for her own actions

  • No. Just talk about std's and condoms to reinforce that message.

  • As long as she knows how to protect herself, i don't see the problem. She is an adult.

  • I agree, she is an adult. By 18 I was living with my boyfriend. I would talk to her about safety and those issues, but she is an adult.

  • Nope, she's an adult. And um OF course they would have sex lol. My hub and I couldnt' be in the same bed together and NOT have sex at that age lol

  • She's 18, I wouldn't have a problem with it. I might have a problem with him spending the night in my home if I had younger children but if they go somewhere on their own, that's up to them

  • if your daughter is honest with you just give her the knowledge to make a good decision

    Answer by brookemhowell at 8:58 PM on May. 30, 2011

  • Yes. I am a realist. If my daughter wants to have sex she will have it locally or out of town. Being above the age of consent she does not need my approval. So yes I would be okay with my child spending several days of fun and relaxation with her boyfriend. And because I worry - I will just ask she call once a day to let me know she and her friend are alive and well. Plus, I would rather she be honest of her location rather than some lame ass lie of going off with the girls for a week end.
