How to tell my 19 year old daughter that I disapprove of her boy friend?
Maybe you shouldn't
Harrison asked how he should tell his 19 year old daughter that he disapproved of her boyfriend.
Perhaps Harrison should consider that at 19 his daughter is :
- old enough to marry without his permission
- old enough to drink
- old enough to join the armed forces and die for her country
- old enough to have a passport and travel the world without his permission
Harrision your daughter is an adult - you need to let go. She may not have the experience to make a good choice for boyfriend - but you have to let her make her own mistakes. Or indeed she may have made the best choice FOR HER and you need to step back and realise that your parental role is not to make the choices for her but be there for her whatever happens.
