Unfortunately, we don't have any control over when our daughters start becoming interested in boys. When they do, the worst mistake parents can make is telling them "no", because they will sneak to see their boyfriend. Lets say your daughter is 14, and has a boyfriend (whether you want them to or not) you want to be in control. To keep control, you need to be able to monitor the situation. In order to do this, try to keep an open communication with your daughter, and this will also make her feel that she can talk with you. If she wants to see her boyfriend outside of school, limit it as much as possible, and offer to take them to the mall, or bowling, so they can see each other. Your daughter will think you are the greatest, but then you can also be close by. I had friends that couldn't date until they were 16, and believe me, their parents did not have a clue what they were doing, and would go over friends houses, just so they could see their boyfriend and they snuck around every chance they got. I think they were the ones that spent the most time with their boyfriends! Bottom line: you always want to know who your child is hanging out with and where they are.
