I sent my 14yr. old niece a text last night and asked her if her and her dad would like to join us and some family for Thanksgiving in our home. We don't see her often and have always asked her to join us for all the holidays.
Her reply to me and my husband was, "Thank you! Would it be alright if my girlfriend joined me, I would like to introduce her to the family?".
This was her reply to coming over on halloween too, but we didn't think much of it and we don't know this girl so we told her maybe next time.
My question is, how should we respond politely to this when we're both in agreence we don't feel it's appropriate at her age to ask us if her girlfriend can join us for Thanksgiving.
