Sr Pom and Sex and Disappointed

Anita - posted on 04/28/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I walked in on my daughter and her boyfriend in our house alone. Very compromising position. I had strict rules that he should not come over if I am not at home. My daughter 16 was asked by this senior who became her bf about 4 months ago. He is. a Senior (18 yrs) They go to same school
Should I allow her to still go after breaking house rules? Sex was denied but i know i walked in just in time. What punishment can I administer. They both sincerely apologized. It's his Prom. I bought my daughter the dress etc., already but she can always use it for her Senior Prom. Any Advice. Would u still send her to prom?

Honestly, you are saying punish her over rules but it sounds like she is being punished over sex. And she may see it that way as well. I don't know if that is the correct course of action but we must all do what we feel is right for our kids. Personally, I would never punish my daughter for trying to have sex with a boy. I wouldn't want her to think sex is wrong or what she did was somehow wrong. If you are trying to prevent sex and you think it will happen at prom, then don't let her go if you feel that is right. For me, I emphasize with my daughter- the type of person she wants to be. Does she want to be the kind that every Tom, Dick, and Harry knows or does she want to be more exclusive. She is going to have sex and more than likely it is going to be before marriage. So are you trying to make sure that happens further down the road?
