She thought you were kidding when you said that you did not want her to date before she is 40.
At 16, your daughter is probably old enough for dating, but she is too young to know all the dangers and pitfalls that come with dating.
Not that you are the tie-breaker, but it is your column, so what's your take? If it was my daughter, I don't think I would be too crazy about the idea either. ASAP That answer just goes to show how some people do not understand not all 16 y/o are intellectually the same how long before she is 17 ? and as long as the phone conversations are not sexualy banter I see nothing wrong with it you you both are waiting to actually "date" until she is 18 her parents shouldn't have a problem with that because you are showing respect to their daughter just let her make her own decisions and remember she is still young let her grow up on her own ok if its real love it will survive its only a 6 year age gap people think it sounds so bad now but when you're 46 she will be 40 noone will think that's a big deal I understand this questionbecause I myself was in the same situation and her and I are still together after 6 years ANOTHER ANSWER IT IS OBVIOUS that the girls parents think she is too young for a 22 year old guy. If this guy cares for the girl, will realize its better for everyone if he moves on to "women" his own age.The website Healthy suggests a school night curfew of between 8 p.m. For instance, you might let her go out with a boy on a Friday or Saturday night, or you might allow her only one weeknight date per week.The NYU Child Study Center also suggests that parents make rules about teens inviting dates over.I see this guy as a predator; I doubt this is his first 15-year-old, and if he gets away with it she won't be his last. -- Hartford I think going to the police first would be a mistake.
