Teenage daughter dating bad boy us online dating market
Talk to your teen about how real life dates don't mimic what might be seen in the movies.
Instead, first dates may be awkward, but they can also be a lot of fun.
My mom and I have always had an amazing closeness -- we can share almost anything -- but I'll admit these were two times that we had some serious tension between us.
If you're reading this, I'm guessing you know exactly the kind of tension I'm talking about!
It can be so painful and frustrating, and even if your daughter knows deep down that her mom is right (like I did), she often still needs to experience the relationship and its consequences herself before she'll admit it.
This year, she discovered boys early in the school year, and we noticed that every time she was "talking to" a boy, her grades declined.
We tried not to make a big deal about it, and we have addressed it with her each time.
