Would you interfere with your teen's relationship

If you knew they were either seeming controling; leading their partner on; using them; or planning on breaking up with them in a really cowardly way? I.e text, letter, in front of the entire school?

No the only time I would interfere is if it was abusive.

This, exactly.  Or if some pedo adult was trying to get involved with my teen, their ass would be in jail....where they would be safe from my DH.

I think any adult that messed with my teen they would PREFER jail to what my DH would do.

Well, I make it known on a daily basis that my dd's boyfriend is an idiot. My other dd has tried repeatedly to get her to like someone else.

He's not exactly controlling (yet) but he's very possesive and manipulative. She got mad at him about a month ago and broke up with him, but he gave her this story about watching his grandma die and if he lost her, it would be worse than that. I'm hoping he played the grandma card too soon and the next time she gets mad, it'll stick.

Yes if they cannot act responsibly while dating than they do not deserve to be dating. I would be ashamed that I did not raise them to treat others better. They are still in my care and I am still raising them so I would spend the time left ensuring they understood the right way to behave in a relationship. If they do not like it well thats too bad. If they live in my house than they follow my rules.

Of course. It would be an important teaching moment.

My DD had a loser boyfriend too who was basically dating her because she was older and therefore SHOULD be more sexually advanced. She was that attached to having her first boyfriend (at 18) that she wouldn't listen to anyone -even her best friend. In the end -he kissed her (because he knew she'd tell him, the guy wasn't physically or emotionally abusive btw)  and the other guy got mad and broke it off and we never heard from him again.

No unless they were being abusive to my child. My mom always shoved into my relationships as a teen and I resent her for it now.
