Help my my 17 year old daughter is dating
Her daughter was on the right track in school, getting straight A's and had no behavioral problems.
The teen's parents had initially allowed her to date this older boy and the relationship had been going well for over a year.
But daughters and mothers often clash, which is why she doesn’t want to heed your sage advice.
and possibly getting pregnant, perhaps say she can see him but only when you're around - come over for dinner, studying, hanging out while you're there and visible at all times. If they wish to go to a movie or dinner - drive them and accompany them, never leaving them out of your sight. He may grow wary of mom always being around and leave."Denise Witmer's thoughts: I agree with cstone360.
Should you allow your daughter to date an older boy?
It is a tricky situation, a hard decision and one that can cause arguments within the family.
(He says he was cheated on and that’s why he is like this.) She is trying to fix him, and he claims to be on board but nothing changes. When my daughter was in high school, she dated someone who treated her poorly.
As a dating coach, I saw the writing on the wall and tried to warn her, but because I’m her mother, she didn’t want to listen. When he dumped her two weeks before prom (ouch), she was devastated.
