Daughter dating older guy
(12/12/2006) By LEONA LABINE You are not your daughter's helpless buddy standing by while she has this dilemma; you are her parent, her mentor, her guide, her boundary-setter.
She is encountering a huge upswing in hormonal growth at this time.
Then one day they are gone and your child can't stand the sound of their name! (12/12/2006) By Jean in GA I don't think a 13 yr old should be dating.
I know things have changed a lot but I think that's too young. (Check with leader to make sure they go to the classroom) Then on Sunday have them go to Sunday school together and church service.
Tell her what kind of man she should look for when she's older and tell her love is not like in the movies.
Also, tell her how beautiful and smart she is everyday because girls need to hear that, especially from their dad or some sort of male figure. Whatever you do, support her decisions and don't criticize. Only support, this doesn't mean just for boys, try to support her in other interests that you think are appropriate in hopes that she will get more focused on music lessons or sports than on the guy.
(12/12/2006) By Debbie Why is she interested in someone that much older?
A 16 year old boy should be socializing with girls his own age. If she were in high school she might see him in a different light.
(12/10/2006) She is underage & living in your home. If she is already out of control it's going to be a disaster as she gets older.
My daughter told me yesterday that she has been dating, a 16 year old boy who is gothic and skips school, for months now. What should I say about this interesting relationship?
Thanks for the help, Virginia from Atlanta, GATell her why people date.I can't say that I'd be letting my 13 year old daughter date anybody.
