I have a 14 yo daughter who insists on going against my dating rules, I told her she's not allowed to date until after she's 15. She's your perfect A honor roll, National Honor Society and cheerleader type of student and although she's responsible with those things she has really bad choices in boys, so much so that I had to take her to see a therapist because it seems she has a low self esteem and the last boy she tried to date only caused more damage than good (cutting). I'm trying to make her understand that she needs to love herself first before thinking of dating anyone. I don't know what to do any more without being the worse mom ever and having her completely silent on me. Do I stand my ground or should I just let her make her mistakes and learn on her own? I mean in today's society these kids are sexting and I'm not okay with that!
