My parents are completely fine with us being together and take us away on holiday so that we can spend time together. Is it a social construct? Because if a parent trusted their child enough, they should trust that they would not be craving sex nor would their companion. Maybe that influences my opinion on it now, but I also had a younger sibling and I know that some of the rules that were in place when I was in high school were loosened up once my brother hit around 16-17. People mature at different rates. What should you do now? Again…teenagers need boundaries in their lives. He is doing so much harm to her by babying her so much. No one wants to be told they're wrong.
He is my best friend and I love him so much. He spent a month in the hospital. Tell your daughter that you trust her and you will allow her to sleep over. I know she is disappointed but we never do anything bad at all. That was probably one of the most amazing time in my life.
I think it holds kids back. I am not sure to what extreme but I know her mother babys her alot as well. I just love to be around him. If you want open lines of communication you have to have a happy medium built with a foundation of love trust and respect. Is that not what creates the pressure in the first place? As for me sleeping on the couch, I will continue since I love both of them very much.
He said the other night that she is having trouble sleeping because of me. It is so freeing, because not everyone will like you or approve no matter what you do. We only see her on holidays, so we just stick it out. Of course he gets out of bed and goes in her room. I would try to talk him into going to counseling. So when she comes over all 3 of us get maybe a couple of hours of sleep if we don't let her just stay in our bed from the get go and in between us mind you. The difference between us is…I pay my bills.
He sleeps with only boxer briefs on. The oldest has for the past 2 nights. But Alexandra is in no doubt her mother has it right. Be happy they want to tell you honestly where they are. I was able to date and hangout with my boyfriend as long as it was with a bunch of friends around.
My boyfriend drives so he takes me a lot of places I need to go work and school. We are sexually active and as he is my first boyfriend, I also lost my virginity to him. I found this to be totally gross. Look at the big picture, let go of your attachments and trust in all your prior years of effort. However we have been able to not go past our boundries we have set together.
In my opinion, kids in relationships that have sleep overs are ghetto. My advice is talk to your daughter, my mom found out that me and my gf have sex and i found her to be very supportive and respecting and i appreciated that greatly. Just my two cents as a teenager. With my daughter, the rule was be home around 12 …. If so, that latter obviously is not only a traitor to his peers, but a self loathing dumbass.
Wrong reasons: because her boyfriend wants to, because her boyfriend is forcing her or else they break up, because everybody else is doing it and she wants to fit in. Too many of my female friends at that age took it as a given that they had very little say in what their boyfriends did. It still pisses me off, but my partner has had a lot of arguments with her over this and she still won't budge. I was royally embarrassed and I felt like a child. And this affects my relationship. And i could imagine why parents wouldnt want that.
Yes its hard to wait especially when you feel that the person youre looking right in the eye is the one. For now she knows that it is good for her, that she lies about her whereabouts and what she is doing. Whether we think they are able to handle the consequences or not. Secondly, you need to know this — if your daughter wants sex with her boyfriend, she will find a way. They may threaten to withdraw this support if the daughter is unwilling to follow their rules. The only reason everyone agrees with you on this blog is because theyre all insecure about how to raise their kids by setting unrealistic boundaries for their children by following the example of other parents on a blog site because they plain and simple do not trust their children. I always tell my daughter, my house, my rules.
I've been encouraging him to invite his girls into his bed. I will agree with parents on this — teenagers are rebellious, but only if you give us a reason to rebel. However, when she takes her shower at night, I snuggle up with him, but it is like she knows, so she hurries and comes running out to get in between. Once she was comfortable with him, she let me continue to have sleepovers at his house. Hormones are raging and either side can be talked into doing something they are not comfortable with.
