if you had a 15yo DD, and she was having text communication with an adult, would you want to know?
So my SD14-about-to-turn-15's friend contacted my Dh via text. Wanted to know if she could plan a surprise party for SD at our house. DH told her sure, we have a great finished basement, we will help you out as much as possible. No prob.
My FIRST thougth was, contact this girl's mother. DH said why? that's not necessary.
I said no 15yo girl should be talking to a 50ishyou man, without her mother knowing. Not because of pedophile reasons... just because parents should know who their kids are talking to.
Long story short -- it turns out that this "friend" really wanted to have a banger (party with uncontrolled guests, alcohol, etc) at our house, using SD's birthday as an excuse.
SD found out about it at school, when one of the 200 or so "guests" spilled the beans. I told DH, this is why you should have immediately contacted the mother (or father).
He doesnt' get it.
What do you think? If a 15yo friend of your DD/SD texted you or your DH, would you reach out to her parents to make sure they knew what was going on?
