Your daughter is going to have to make decisions on her own; ones you don't agree with.The best you can do is talk to her, tell her your concerns, and be there for her if her decisions backfire. Tell her how you feel about it and what your concerns are. He can learn about your family and I think that creates a better open line of communication.

I want to be able to chat about this with her, without her totally dismissing what I have to say. Maybe go out on a lunch date or picnic, something nice that says, "I love you, so let's talk and spend some time together." She may not understand at her age that even a couple years can be drastic for teens in terms of mental development, maturity, experience, and what they want to spend their time doing.

I agree with the other answers saying that forbidding her from doing anything won't get you very far, but I do understand your concern.

If you forbid her to see him, she may go behind your back and do it anyway.

The best thing to do is show you support her but also are just worried.

We'll look back at the things we did and worried over in our high school years and laugh or cry. I'm working on the Freaky sophomore story, sorry it's taking so long!

I'm not so comfortable with the age difference between the two of them. Set aside some time one day to discuss it with her, but keep in mind: she's not in trouble; you are just concerned about what may happen.

Just let her know that she's in charge of herself, but as her parent, you are in charge of feeling concern and making sure she's taken care of.

If you're worried about the boy taking advantage or even just pressuring her to do anything she doesn't want to, make it very clear that you're open to any and all inquiries she may have.

It would also be a good idea to meet him, just to make sure he is a responsible young man.
