I know one father that had four daughters who were not allowed to date. I have teenagers and this is a tough one! If you could, you might want to have a goal of get teen to stop having sex.
We believe that she should wait till college to really explore one on one relationships. My 17 year old son has never been out on a date himself and he is not worried about it.
