My 14 yr old daughter has been dating an 18 year old for a few months now. I decided to allow it because like most teenagers, she would do it anyway and would incourage lying and sneeking around. I want my children to be able to come to me, not hide things from me. Anyway he seems like a good guy. My concerns are for her losing contact with her friends her age. By dating someone that much older at that age, I am scared she will lose interest in her 14 year old life and be more interested in an 18 year old life. Any advice on how I should deal with this?
