Senior girl dating a freshman guy college
If you're worried about the boy taking advantage or even just pressuring her to do anything she doesn't want to, make it very clear that you're open to any and all inquiries she may have.
Also: under any circumstances whatsoever, when it comes to her body "no" means "no", and she is in control of what she does and doesn't do - not someone else's desires/requests.
You may find that he is not at all what you thought and he is far less likely to do something "wrong" if he knows who you are, and what your expectations of him as a friend of your daughter.
Just let her know that she's in charge of herself, but as her parent, you are in charge of feeling concern and making sure she's taken care of.
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.
The more you try and control the more they'll push the boundaries. That’s when they start learning about their future and what not to do. Okay as a senior in highschool, we would consider the guy in the equation to basically be a pedophile. Senior boys aren't so good for naive young freshman girls. Your daughter will be upset but trust me, you'll be thanked for it later. I have had experience with a guy from 9th, 10th, 11th, and now 12th and it seems to be that the juniors are normally the ones worse for freshman girls.
This way, she won't be so afraid to come to you if the need arises.
It may not be fun to think about, but she may need some information that you don't want her to have as a parent, but she needs as a young adult.
You cannot make this decision for her, she will just rebel against you and continue to see him.
You can't be there physically for her all the time, but if you can start the discussion yourself, you'll be the voice that comes to mind when she needs to recall all you've taught her. My family didn't seem comfortable at first then they met him. We have now been together five years and married for a year and a half.
My parents had a sit down talk with both of us when we first started dating and there expectations If he came over we had to stay in the living room.
My mom had issues with it at first with the whole age thing, but once she got to know him she was okay with it.
It took a little while, but now she views him as her second son and we plan on getting married after we both graduate college.
