17 yr old dating 14 year old dn gay dating
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. I know that the more parents try to keep their children young, the more their friends may pressure them to grow up. I know that you are in a position to open the communication for ALL her dating experiences. So I will not give you any advice, but if you don't mind, I will tell you what my 10 years as a middle school teacher and school counsellor taught me: I know that if a boy and girl want to spend time together, they will, parents permission or not, whether they go to the same school together or not, whether they live in the same city or not. I know that your child wants you to know what is going on with her.If your 16 year old does not already have a curfew, now might be the time to set one. Beyond her nightly curfew, you might set rules that dictate when and how much she can date -- especially if you have concerns about her schoolwork or other responsibilities that might suffer.The website Healthy suggests a school night curfew of between 8 p.m. For instance, you might let her go out with a boy on a Friday or Saturday night, or you might allow her only one weeknight date per week. The other day she came home from school kind of asking me to go to the movies with a boy. By the time I was 17 I was involved with a man, not a boy, and I knew it was ok because my mom let me - and she told me she understood what it was like to be in love, and she didn't want to forbid me to see him because then I'd be sneaking out to see him anyway.... He turned out to be a very stand up guy who married me and now we have a wonderful life together and the age difference doesn't matter now in our 30s.... He goes to High School and she is in Middle School. By the end of the summer I can just say that I'm glad I was strong enough to say no as many times as I had to - not all girls will be able to do that, and not all boys will take no for an answer!
We require doors to be open in the family room (or wherever they are) when he’s over, but I can’t be aware every time she sees him or when she’s out with friends.
The age of consent varies by state, with most states, including Connecticut, setting it at age 16.
Some states base the penalty for violations on the age of the offender, with older offenders receiving harsher penalties.
Offer to drive them to the movie (somebody has to if they are only 14, right? (Not near them.) When my son was younger most of his friends found this OK, as long as I didn't talk to them or act like I knew them. And then today I read your request, I guess it is what moms go through. I know that you are very blessed to have an open relationship with your child.
