ANY DADS ON BOARD??? I need some insight here :-)
I posted this separately....but I'm hoping to get some advise from dads who have been there.....please :-) I don't understand "dads" minds!!!
My 17 YO daughter met a kid, he seems nice, I know some of his family...they are "officially seeing each other". She's 17, will be 18 in a few months...he's 19 and graduated last year.
My husband just can't grasp it...he feels that the boy, since he graduated, should be 'getting his life together" not dating a 17 yo...but they are only like 18 months apart, so I'm trying to think of it as...what if she were 16 and he 18? What if she were a sophomore in HS, and he a senior, and they dated then he graduated...
Moms....how do I deal with this? I can't have them, her, in my sight all of the time....however I dont' want to discourage it completely, I don't want her sneaking or rebelling and I know SO Many who dated in HS, and got married......they are fine, then the others who don't work out.......I'm just lost here people!
help, help, help, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
