It is a tricky situation, a hard decision and one that can cause arguments within the family.
When your teenage daughter has an interest in a boy who is older than her, it is easy to become concerned.
This mother is seeking advice about her soon to be 17-year-old daughter's relationship with a 21-year-old man.
Her daughter was on the right track in school, getting straight A's and had no behavioral problems.
This could cause her to withdraw from the family in many ways and cause even bigger issues.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.The mom could try and forbid it, but has no way of doing what she would need to do to enforce it. Keep lines of communication open with your daughter, talking to her often about sex, love, family values and teen pregnancy.Many parents in this situation fear that their 16-year-old will become pregnant or that her heart will be broken by this young man.These are all valid questions and make the situation difficult to handle.
