My 15yr old daughter (just turned 15 last month) is dating an 18yr old boy, and thinks she's "in love". There's nothing I can do to stop it, but would love any ideas on how to slow it down. He's graduated (well not officially, but not attending high school OR post sec), doesn't even really work, smokes alot of pot, lives at home. I can see she is becoming almost submissive to him and making excuses for his laziness. She doesn't hang out with her girl buddies much anymore, grades are slipping, her attitude problems are increading since the relationship began five months ago. We thought she'd get bored because he does Nothing, but in fact she's becoming more like him! Ideas?
