When our daughter was first born my husband and I decided that we would not let her date until she was 16 years old. She is 14 years old now, and is a freshman in high school this year, she is a 4.0 student plays sports and also had her first job this summer. I do believe we have raised her to make good decisions and think we should maybe rethink letting her date, besides it seems like at her age, dating is just texting and talking on the phone. However I am not 100% on board with this, as last year in her middle school there was a girl her age that was pregnant. Again I know my daughter will make good decisions, but I want her to focus on school and sports and not have to worry about boys. I was not able to date until I was 15 years old, but didn't have a real boyfriend until I was 16. Also keep in mind we have always told her she can have friends that are boys and she does, we just do not want her to have a serious boyfriend. Are we being to over protective?
