Can anyone offer some advice, I'm an old fashioned mum,and want my DD to be 16 before staying over at her boyfriends. She assures me nothing will happen, and they have been together for 18 months. Also have younger DD who will watch any developments for future use. She is only 3 months off 16, am I being unreasonable to say no?
SimplyCupcakes - it all sounds lovely and I think it's nice and if/when they do get into a sexual relationship it wont be 'just sex' as they really seem to care about each other and frankly for me that's far more important than the date on their birth certificates. I would be concerned though that DS would feel tied into the relationship in a way he wouldn't if she didn't stay so I would discuss this with him.
I don't think the age on the birth certificate is as important as how mature they both are. Every parent has to do what they are comfortable with and if you are uncomfortable with it, tell them so. I'd be ok with it but follow your gut.
