Is this crazy?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So my SIL was talking today about her DD14 starting to date. She's imposed a "one year younger one year older" rule on her daughter. At this point I'm like "fair enough, my DD was 17 but your child your rule". and then she interrupts me to say "Well 2 days before the date he comes in for an interview (he has a form to fill out with his classes, grades, any detentions/suspensions, family contact details) and she will ask him for an ID if she thinks he's too old. Is this crazy?

My mom had a form for them to fill out. So embarrassing.

Shrug - a little odd, but better to be involved than uninvolved...

My parents tried something similar. I just kepy my relationships secret and ran off with a guy (my husband) when I was 17. Not a good way to keep your kids close.

Like I said in a previous post - I would expect them to give ours and get theirs in return in case of emergancy - but if it was just some random moment (or something as insane as this situation) I'd like him to double check with me :)

Um you don't want the phone numbers of parents?

I am to have the number of all the parents when they are out with friends, this will include dates, boyfriends/girlfriends. So chances are why would have the number already.

I'm surprised this is weird.

I'd be less uncomfortable with my son giving them MY phone number

Good luck using that one with my DD

Quoting Kitschy:

Really? My kid's not going anywhere if I don't have the parents phone number.

There would be nothing to "use ". If I didn't know you and have your number they wouldn't be friends.

I told my girl's dates, I want their phone #, their address, their parents # and ssn. Make amd model of their car and dl #. Because if anything happens to them I will HUNT him down. Needless to say, nothing happened to them. No, I didnt get all that info, but the boys treated my girls w respect.
I do agree w meeting the boy before hand. And getting their # and parents # and adress.

I had a good relationship w my kids, they warned their dates I'd be asking questions. They were not embarressed. They knew my reasons were their safety

 Lol!  Well that's one way to discourage potential boyfriends.  I think it's hilarious!
