Teenage daughter dating older man
It’s really not hard to see the appeal in dating an older guy when you’re a teenager.You’re not really feelin’ the fact that dudes in your grade still can’t manage to wear deodorant every day and they still think that poop jokes are as good as humor gets (who doesn’t love the occasional poop joke but come on).“An older dating partner can often be more persuasive when it comes to things like sex or other risky behaviors.There is a world of difference between their cognitive abilities,” he says.(Were going to talk more specifically later tonight) I know she lied about dating because we would not have approved, and that is true.So there will definitely be consequences for that, but as for the rest, I am at a loss. But knowing her, I can understand what an older person would like about her. And Guy has called apologizing about lying and they both have said he wanted to tell us, but she didnt. I spent a lot of time today talking him out of finding the Guy and doing bodily harm to him.Rather than banning the relationship, you might consider explicitly sharing your concerns with your daughter, while also acknowledging her good feelings about the relationship.
Or are you concerned that she’ll get overly attached to a relationship that will end or change once this boy leaves for college?Our 15-1/2 year-old daughter wants to date an almost 18-year-old boy. While your daughter’s desire to date an older boy may not match your view of whom she should date, short of keeping her home and removing her access to technology, you’re unlikely to block her from being in contact with him.
