And then have her fall over laughing when I ask if she'd like to invite him for tea?

There was me htinking we had a lovely open relationship and expecting her to tell me everything and turns out she's a normal bloody teenage after all.

I have embarassed her offered to provide condoms in the bathroom and monthly chlamydia tests.

Oh, if she's changed her status, it must be serious!

YABU and not hip and with it. You should be down with the kids like me

CaptainMartinCrieff Mon 22-Aug-11 20:54:40

and she won't tell me what his parents do or where they live or their phone numbers or anything.

Monthly chlamydia tests? Maybe 3 monthly - monthly a bit OTT? How old is she? If you found out from facebook then she obviously isn't too worried about you knowing. Most teenagers are a bit secretive - and they're entitled to have privacy and need it the same as we do. It doesn't sound like you have anything to worry about tbh.

Have you asked what his father does for a living, and which church they attend?

AtYourCervix Mon 22-Aug-11 20:58:26

She's 15.

Oh fucking hell she better not become a statistic.

I'm going to have to make some rules. I don't do rules. What will I need?

You have the sex talk, that if it becomes serious and they wish to whatevers you will take her to the doctor to get the pill.

I'm so hip and with it I was lookinh for the 'like' button! Go me.

You're doing a good job, she sounds normal. Never ask what the parents do... ever ever ever, she'll tell you if she thinks its relevant, she won't tell you because she'll probably think you'll judge, especially if the answer is 'nothing but drink special brew'.

Rule number 1: Not under my roof.

I asked DS1 if he'd like to invite his new girl-friend over for Sunday lunch.

The look I got would have curdled milk. grin

Is it for real or is a bit it of fun?

My DD is "married to xxxxxxx"
Went to xxxxxxx high school
And "works at Asda"

She's 13 and still at school

As far as I know!

squeakytoy Mon 22-Aug-11 21:17:00

Probably a bit late for "rules" now if she has never had any confused.

hocuspontas Mon 22-Aug-11 21:22:25

lol pink, same here! Dd3 (13) apparently lives in The Jungle, Florida and works as a toilet cleaner at Poundland grin

Honeydragon Mon 22-Aug-11 21:22:32

take her for work for the day? Then she won't need the condoms on account every time he touches her she'll yelp and cower in the corner fingers crossed to ward of the evil of pregnancy and childbirth grin

Rule number 1: Not under my roof

Bupcakes Why would the OP's daughter want to do it under your roof? shock grin

NorksAreMessy Mon 22-Aug-11 21:34:04

honeydragon I was about to make a similar observation.

cervix I have always found 'one foot on the floor at any time' to be a useful rule.
Also, 'don't use my lube' to be just good manners.
Please provide flavored condoms (da yooofs like flavored things...alcopops eg)

trumpton Mon 22-Aug-11 21:34:06

WE neva 'ad a roof wen I wuz a teenager . we 'ad bak of bike sheds.

Mare11bp Mon 22-Aug-11 21:45:49

cervix are you not a midwife?

You can deliver at home grin

Honeydragon Mon 22-Aug-11 21:46:51

I wonder whether buppy is running an illicit frootshoot and pastie den...but draws the line at fornicating teens?

AtYourCervix Mon 22-Aug-11 21:46:56

My plan so far (which appears to be working) is to describe in graphic detail what I deal with daily. I also go for the 'so open mided you embarass them' method.

I'm no good at rules. they just make me people want to rebel and break them.

AtYourCervix Mon 22-Aug-11 21:48:18

but then i'm the first to admit i'm a bit crap at this parenting lark. you jus think you are getig your head around it and it's making sense and then suddenly the start a new and more challenging phase, or turn into an unfathomable teenager or something.

reelingintheyears Mon 22-Aug-11 21:49:45

In a relationship at 15 is soooo sweet...[heart]

Mare11bp Mon 22-Aug-11 21:55:42
