I have a 14 year old and she wants to "date" I use the term loosely because kids dont really date like we used to. I have the following fears:
1) she will get pressured into doing things even though she knows she shouldnt
2) kids may spread rumors about her at school
I am a single working mom - no father in the picture and I cannot stay home to watch her. She knows no one is allowed in the house when I am not home and she follows that mostly because I have done "drive upons" its where I randomly show up at home at any given time then go back to work.
How worried should I be if they are hanging out at the library or pizza place and if other kids are there?
We have talked about sex - we are pretty open and I do trust her but at the end of the day she IS a teenager and they are so impossible anyway so sometimes I feel like I am standing at the brick wall just banging my head.
Any other moms in my spot?
