I am letting my 11 year old go on vacation with her boyfriend

They have been bf/gf for 3 years. They are going to the beach next month and invited her along. I trust his parents and both my daughter and him. I decided to let her go.  She is very responsible and smart. She doesn't get in any trouble so I feel that she should go. Her father thinks differently

You are setting a bad precedence by allowing this.

They are both good kids. His parents are life long friends so it's like she's just going with a cousin or girlfriend.

Why would you even allow an 11 year old to have a boyfriend?

But she's not. It's her boyfriend. There is a difference. Lots of kids are good kids but still experiment with all sorts of things they shouldn't.

You let her go now and she'll expect to be able to do it here on out.

Just because she has an elementary boyfriend doesn't mean I will be a grandma soon. I had boyfriends in elementary. It was harmless.
