I was speaking to a friend today and told her that dd had got a boyfriend. I said he was a lovely lad and they just hold hands and havent kissed yet. She told me I was ridiculous and she wouldnt tell me even if they had. I said she would. Anyway a bit later I went to collect dd and she said quite excitedly "guess what george and I did today? we kissed!" So obviously I was right there so made a mental note to tell her nexct time we speak

how much info does your teen offer? and what is TMI

How would you know how much they told you though? In that if they were giving the full story about something?

My 17 year old told me when he lost his virginity. I mean not right away "Hey mum guess what I did tonight!!!", but a couple of weeks later when we were having a close chat. He's in is 20s now.

Now for all you with babies, tots and young kids, now that is a milestone. Worse than their first day at school!!

To be truthful Jampot I wouldn't mention it to your friend. It's between you and your daughter, and what if your friend mentioned it next time she met your daughter?

How old is she BTW?

mine offers way too much info really, tells me everything which is mostly really sweet, but i really don't want to know that he hasn't had a wa*k for 2 days when he (apparently) normally has several a day.

My DD tells me everything or has done for years, then something changed!!!!
I knew she was up to no good and i could tell she was lying, because we had such a close relationship before, so what Im trying to say is even if it is not what you want to hear we as mothers must listen and bite that tonge till you cant bite any longer

He tells me most things and the rest I 'find out'

she's 14. I told her about my convo with pal and she laughed - she's very cool about things. She would most likely tell her herself to be honest. I wish I was like her at 14

loshad im thinking that is TMI!

I think that teenagers don't tell everything. They tell you what they think is acceptable for you to hear.

DD1 now 20 always told me everything, DD2 17 hardly tells me anything but will sometimes want to have a long chat about things. DD3 15 tells me most things.

ds1 age 13 tells me everything - usually about a week after it happens and starts by asking a hypothetical question.

ds2 nearly 12 plays his cards much closer to his chest.

Ds1(20) tells me everything, even if it makes me go ewwwwww! Ds2(18) tells me mostly everything, when I can pin him down longer than 30 seconds. Ds3(15) is at that "I'm going to send you to live in another house, far, far away from me for your own safety", and ds4(14) tells me most things but I can never understand him because he mumbles all the time.......
