My 14 year old daughter has a new boyfriend who recently turned 15 (he is a grade above her). I have met his family on several occasions. They have gone on group outings to the movies or downtown after school and I have let her go on a family day trip with him and his family. While he is a nice young man (a little too quiet for my taste) and his family is nice enough I am still uneasy about the whole situation. Recently his best friend and her best friend (who are also "dating") had sex. My daughter told me after the situation and was very upset about the poor decision her friend had made. We had a very long, candid conversation about the situation and talked about it off and on for several days. My daughter and I are close and are very open about sex and respecting yourself and your body. While I did not think this was the end of the conversation by any means, I did feel confident that she would make better choices than her friend. What a FOOL I am!! This morning I read her messages on Skype becasue she forgot to sign out and saw that my daughter and this boy were talking about having sex now. At this time I am very ANGRY and want to wait to talk to her about this situation. However, I don't know what to say for fear I will be too upset. What I want to do is forbid her from ever seeing this boy!!! What should I say/do now?
