I was having breakfast the other day with a friend who was giving dating advice to his son.
For purposes of his anonymity, I am going to call just call him "Son." My friend said, "Son, you're 18 years old, so I am going to tell you how you date.
:/ I definitely think you should invest lots of time getting to know him and talking to your daughter about boundaries and everything. I was a teen mum myself to my daughter, I had her when I was 19!
I think you are handling things well, and I can understand that your daughter likes this boy and likes the idea of dating etc and being able to "date" helps them learn how to form relationships in the adult world, and I think it's pretty normal for the younger ones to be interested in the older ones, however I must say I find it a little concerning that a 16 year old would have an interest in a 12 year old...
*Looking for advice* my daughter Jordan is 12 (13 in April) and is in year 7 at high school. They go to the same school and have known each other for years.
He has been to the house a few times and seems like an OK kid. I read the forum heading a parents of teenagers not teenage parents : P Perhaps some of you lovely ladies can offer some advice from my daughters perspective?
But if these teens are having sex, and you live in a state where prosecutors aggressively enforce the law, it’s possible that your son could be charged with statutory rape.
The girls mom is taking the b/f to court for a restraining order which will end the relationship.I have told Jordan she will not be going to his house or going out on "dates" with him and when he is here they have to be in eyesight! I know what 16 year old boys want but I worry if I try to banish him she will rebel and go behind my back. I was a teen mum myself to my daughter, I had her when I was 19!I have no first hand advice, but I would do the same as you.Not let them out on dates, but allow him over to see her and so you can get to know him too!And only allow him at his house if you know and trust his parents to keep an eye on them.Your 18-year-old son is dating a 16-year-old female classmate – no big deal, right?
