My 14 year old daughter feels she has the right to start dating because her friends are doing it. I feel she is to young and not ready for the pitfalls of dating. Also I was 14 once too and I know what boys are really after. I'm already a single mom struggling to make ends meet with out the possibility of a teen pregnancy to add to my worries. We constantly argue over this subject and I think driving a wedge between us, we had a great mother/daughter relationship until puberty set in. I'm looking for sound advice to stop the bickering, find a happy medium and maybe to show my daughter that with maturity waiting won't be such a bad thing.
