Dating a 17 year old
If your daughter has had no prior boyfriends or flattering attention from boys, she may be very reluctant to give up this relationship, despite the age difference and logical explanations why it's not a great idea.I would also guess she is aware of your fear that she'll repeat the mistakes of your youth.There was a letter to my daughter from a 17-year-old boy. We don't know if we trust her now, and we wonder what's wrong with a 17-year-old who would be interested in someone so much younger. When she came home today, she went straight to her room and won't talk to us. I would guess that she has kept this relationship from you because she knows that you would disapprove of it because of the disparity in their ages.When she got home we asked her if she had given out our home address and phone number to any boys and she said yes. My husband and I got married when we were 18 and had our daughter when we were 17. You do have reason to be concerned about a relationship between a 17-year-old boy and your 14-year-old, eighth-grade daughter.There is a huge difference between 20 and 17 from a maturity point.A three year difference down the road is nothing,but at your ages it is big.2.
Why dont u wait until u are 18 yrs old if u want to be with this guy?
Use this occasion to connect with your daughter in an even more meaningful manner.
Try to remember what it was like to be her age before you begin these talks.
Well I know this girl she used to date a 27 year old and no one but certain people had problems with it but if you are truly cared by the guy it should not matter right...
Well that's the thing people judged them for being together because of the big age difference...
