My 14-year-old daughter has a boyfriend and she wants to spend time alone with him.
Every chance they get their faces are stuck together, and the other day I noticed a hicky under her collarbone.
While your daughter is, predictably, aghast when you show your face in the same room as her and her boyfriend, it would feel even stranger to her if you granted her free reign.
Teen dating is a wild ride, filled with ups and downs for teens and the grown-ups charged with their care.
The pace at which teens enter into romantic relationships is just as individual as the teens themselves; while some 14-year-olds are eager to dive into a romantic duo, others dip their toes into dating by spending time in larger groups of peers, and still others stay happily out of the water for some time.
How far is too far for my 14-year-old and her boyfriend?
He’s fairly “out there” about his attraction to her, and she seems to like that a lot.
He walked out of prison on May 3, 2004, at age 19, a free man.
