Counseling teen daughter in relationship

Charlotte - posted on 05/20/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




My 15 year old daughter has been in a relationship for 2 months. The young man is 16. He plays 3 sports and is very academic. My daughter is equally busy in performing arts. Over the last couple of weeks he was very busy finishing up Lacrosse season and bringing up some if his grades before finals. My daughter assured him that she was "not a needy girlfriend" and could put up with the lack of attention and texting that her other friends offer her. Long story short she has been getting a lot if attention from a couple if other boys and now that the school year is finished and her boyfriend is excited to spend time with her she is ready to move on! I am so frustrated with her, this could be devastating for him. I am especially sensitive because I have an older son who is also high achieving and he has had his heart crushed with similar timing. She has not broken up with him yet and I have encouraged her to give it about a week of doing the fun things together they enjoyed before all of this. Any suggestions?
