My daughter went to the prom last year with a Senior. She was a freshman at the time and not allowed to date, but I did allow her to go to the prom with this Senior. When she turned 15 she was allowed to date. So she kept in touch with this senior. Well he graduated and I thought that would be the end of it. Now I find out the guy is staying in this area and wants to date my daughter. As far as I know and my daughter says they have only ever kissed. I don't allow them to go out together. We live in a very small town, so its not really a place were kids can go out and date. No place to go. I've seen some texts that they send each other and they use the word love!! Should I stop them from seeing each other? I'm wanting to trust her, but the age difference is bothering me. And once I tell her she can't see him, how do I make sure she isn't?

The more you tell her "no" the more she is going to want the relationship. I would suggest keeping the lines of communication open with your daughter. Invite the young man over for dinner and a movie where you can supervisor them.
Right now the age difference is big but in a few years it won't seem like such a big deal. Hope and pray that you raised your daughter right and that she will make the right choices.

Next question overall
What can I do if my 6-year-old keeps getting in trouble at school?
