Anyway, shes not asking to date but to let the boy hang out with us when we go out and do family stuff like putt putt or bowling or movies. My question is......... do you think shes too young for this? What do you think????? I need input, Im on unfamilar ground!
I personally don't think she is too young. I am sure you have raised her with good morals and if she lets her wings flap a little just have faith in her that she will make the right choices. If she does not thats human nature. I think it is a good idea to keep them busy around you and your family. Good luck

I feel for you! I have two girls. The oldest is 13. She wanted to have a boyfriend and I told her "Well you can have a boyfriend as long as there is no touching, kissing, texting after 9:00, no dates by yourselves and no unsupervised visits!"

so she HAD a boyfriend.........for about 3 days!

Then she decided that there really was no point to it........so she "broke up" with him.

If you do let her have a boyfriend just remember these words that an 8th grade teacher friend told me when I was chaperoning my first middle school dance.......

"Never, EVER let them be alone together!!!! Never! Ever!!!!!"

Ah, and then the ladies chime in and they are totally objective! Thank you ladies. These are my thoughts too. My daughter is thoughtful enough of me to ask to date this boy WITH the family! She hasnt asked for alone dates, Im sure she already knows the answer to this one!

Invite him over . and in this order

Show him your gun collection .

Tell him about all the old abandoned wells on the property

Explain to him that he needs to watch his step around the "property" because he may just wind up in a well.

Mac~ Dont forget that shes a hunter too, she has her own weapons. My husband says when the time comes he will tell the boy that shes an excellent marksman and then ask him where he thinks she got it from. LOL, Hes had almost 15 years to think this over. Its just convincing him that the time HAS come!
