Hi All. Here is s topic that has been on my mind for a long time but now it's finally in my face to deal with. I had always wondered how I would feel on that dreadful day where my 16 year old daughter would ask, "Mom, can I go to Scotty's house?" UGH! Scotty (not a real name) is an average teenaged boy who likes skateboarding, hanging out, and my daughter. Everytime she asks me if she can do something with Scotty I practically cringe but seem to give no as an answer more times than not. I would like to hear some ideas on what other moms find to be acceptable activities as far as teen dating goes. I deffo don't want the daughter hanging out at some guy's house. I don't mind dropping her off at the movies with him as long as other friends will be there and she will only be gone for a total of four hours. I also don't mind them going on walks through the neighborhood holding hands but thats about it. Any other ideas? Am I old fashioned? Lame? Crazy? A terrible mom?
