High school freshman dating senior
Get to know him and figure out their feelings for each other.My mom was uncomfortable with my boyfriend who is 4 years older.The best you can do is talk to her, tell her your concerns, and be there for her if her decisions backfire. Tell her how you feel about it and what your concerns are.You cannot make this decision for her, she will just rebel against you and continue to see him.My mom saw that he cares for me and wouldn't do anything to hurt me. You'll be able to tell how he feels for her As a freshman in Highschool, I did the same thing.Although it didnt work out my relationship lasted three years.Talk with your daughter and set boundaries together. That’s where all this bad behavior is coming from, but a 14 year old dating is perfectly fine.
I want to be able to chat about this with her, without her totally dismissing what I have to say. Maybe go out on a lunch date or picnic, something nice that says, "I love you, so let's talk and spend some time together." She may not understand at her age that even a couple years can be drastic for teens in terms of mental development, maturity, experience, and what they want to spend their time doing. I agree with the other answers saying that forbidding her from doing anything won't get you very far, but I do understand your concern. He can learn about your family and I think that creates a better open line of communication.Really you just need to talk to her, but be positive when you do while also letting her know you are uncomfortable with this situation.If you forbid her to see him, she may go behind your back and do it anyway.
