Rules about dating are not trying to prevent her from participating in this normal, healthy social experience -- the rules have a purpose.
You should create limits that give you peace of mind and that keep her safe. Explain that the curfew is rigid and that she must be home by curfew -- and tell her the consequences of coming home late.
The cell phone that your teen has seemingly glued to her fingertips comes in handy when she starts dating.
Make it a rule that she must share information with you about her date before she goes out and that she must update you if plans change.
I have let her go to the mall on a weekend afternoon with him and he has been over the house 1 time.
I have talked to her about sex and feelings and everything in between. Is it wrong to let her hang out with him at the mall, see a movie or just have him come over for a few hours (supervised)? He does not have a license and gets rides from parents. I always worry when an older boy seeks out a younger girl.
My husband who is her step-father thinks I am out of my mind to allow her to go anywhere with him. B :) I personally would not let her hang out with just her boyfriend. At this age I think a group of friends hanging out is a much better idea.
Again, she is a responsible girl (does homework, takes honors classes, gets good grades and cooperates with chores around the house). I have received so many thoughtful and genuinely caring responses to my question. I am going to allow occasional visits to our home, dates at the mall in the afternoon, and staying after school with him once a week so they can walk to the local Dunkin' Donuts. 14 is too young, no matter how responsible she is in other areas, to be getting into possible adult situations.
It could cause problems when you're of age and she's still not legal, but as long as the feelings are genuine go for it, just be careful to avoid statutory rape in a few years since you could easily get in a large amount of trouble. Ki kahi mai apnaa pyar us pr impose to nahi Kr raha hoon..actuly c love me a lot..mujhe ye feel hota haiii ki in school .clog.. Her moms knew about our relationship and she has imposed. Okay well my Bf is 16 and I'm 13 and we truly do love each other, so age is just a number and think about it when you two get older, you two can start a family and live together as long as you truly love her then you should be with her. TBH Ayee well TBH I like a 16 year old and I'm 14 buhh I'm a female and he likes me buhh we just funna wait for a couple more year to start dating and then we funna see when we can go out and shii buhh yea and at least u aren't 6 or 8 years apart I can see where your coming from lad, but because of the age difference even though its too years might be a bit funny, let me explain i live in the UK and the age of consent is 16 for mental maturity is as well so if someone was really slow had the age of 12 and is 16 then its breaking law.J., It sounds like you are doing exactly what you should.If you try to keep her shut up, she'll likely start to act out.She thought you were kidding when you said that you did not want her to date before she is 40.At 16, your daughter is probably old enough for dating, but she is too young to know all the dangers and pitfalls that come with dating.
