My Daughter Doesn't Need To Have a Boyfriend Until She's At Least 18!

by TLTheLiberator 118 replies
That recent marriage of the 51 year-old actor and the 16 year old girl - with her parents permission got me thinking.

Well not really.

My wife and I have already decided that our 13 year old daughter will not have a "love" interest until she's a legal adult.


- Boys can confuse a young lady who's certainly going to college.

- When boys and girls spend time alone certain things will happen.

- I was a young man once and I know the drill so I'm not going to buy the nice guy routine.

- I know it may be hard on her but - too bad, she's going to have to live with it and get over it.

- She is and will be driven everywhere she goes until 18, and communications with the parents of her BFFs will be ongoing and coordinated.


She wanted to go to the Harry Potter movie alone with her BFFs and my wife and I burst out laughing.

It was like a scene out of the Cosby show that we saw last week.

She's only 13 now but I guess it would be OK in a couple of years as long as one of the parents drops them off and picks them up.

I also know teenagers can be full of all sorts of tricks.

Good luck with your kids - I'm going to need it also.

All The Best!

      I'm not sure what restrictions we'll set on our son (now a toddler) when he becomes a teen. I hitchhiked alone across Argentina when I was 15. I wouldn't let him do that.

      It's gong to be a bummer for her and I hope she doesn't turn out gay or a wild woman, but we feel it's best to proceed this way.

      We're going to talk to the other parents and see if we can get a partnership on this matter.

      If none of her BFFs can have a boyfriend it makes it easier for all of them.

      All The Best!!

    She may not NEED a boyfriend, but she probably will have one anyway, regardless of what you do.

      Good luck with that
      Seriously, good luck with that.
      One of the heaviest burdens I carried raising my girls was remembering what I was like at their age
      We let them sorta date while teens, but I always had a talk with the boys first.
      I'd tell them I remembered what I was like at their age and if they touched my little girl very bad things would happen to them.
      Then I'd smile and say "Always remember. I've been to prison and I don't mind going back".
      Don't really know how well that worked, but it sure was fun to watch them pee themselves a little

    been strict is good but you need to have some limits.Give your girl enough freedom because if you lock her up she will sneak out.You can stop her from been in love unless she is caged in the house all day.

      You are missing something that's important. Know your child, raise a child you can trust who is not afraid to come to you with any problems or questions.

      Be involved in her life - be vigilant about what she does online and who her friends are and who is the "love of her life this week". You know you can't exert such relentless control - if you do, she'll get very good at hiding what she does and who she does it with.

      I'm so glad I had sons!

    I recommend the advice Michael Duncan Clarke's character on 2 1/2 Men gave Ryan Stiles' character concerning having a daughter: Bulk up.

      If somebody doesn't want their daughter running around with boys, it would help to also bulk the daughter up.

    Ever heard of the word rebellion?

    You're asking for trouble if you are genuinely serious.

    Tsk tsk tsk, TL.

    Here's a hint for you: she's going to do it anyway. I don't understand strict parents. You're supposed to support your children. Shouldn't your daughter learn from her parents instead of the world? She will date anyway. She will have a boyfriend anyway. She just might *gasp* have sex anyway.

    You're leading down a dangerous road by being super-strict and not letting her date. Why would you do such a thing? Don't you love your daughter??

      PS: Good luck TL, think you may need it.

    She'll probably feel left out when all of her friends are "dating" etc.

    Well, she's already been told so she will be prepared.

    When she was 5 or 6...

    I remember, a little boy was trying to kiss her at a party at a restaurant and I wanted to throw him against the wall.

    I'm only kidding about wanting to throw him against the wall.

    TL, if you have any hopes of your plans working, you had better relocate to a remote private island and start home schooling!
