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?

I'm glad you ask this question because I'm about in the same boat as you. My 16 yr old daughter is dating a 19 yr old & I don't like it. we did tell her at age 16 she could date but only if the boy came to our house to watch movies or something like that & talk on the phone, NO car dates period! Also we thought we made it plain to her when we said no dating anyone over 18. well I guess that went in one ear & out the other. I have been trying to handle the situation very carefully because I know if I forbid her to stop seeing him she will only see him behind my back & who knows what that would turn into so my plan is to let her keep dating him like she is, having him come over, talkin on the phone & seeing him at church. Maybe this will help you feel more comfortable with ur daughter's BF if he dates her on ur terms.

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