There was a letter to my daughter from a 17-year-old boy. We don't know if we trust her now, and we wonder what's wrong with a 17-year-old who would be interested in someone so much younger. When she came home today, she went straight to her room and won't talk to us. I would guess that she has kept this relationship from you because she knows that you would disapprove of it because of the disparity in their ages.When she got home we asked her if she had given out our home address and phone number to any boys and she said yes. My husband and I got married when we were 18 and had our daughter when we were 17. You do have reason to be concerned about a relationship between a 17-year-old boy and your 14-year-old, eighth-grade daughter.That is on my ur opinion and it is not a very good one, how old are you 20 or older? ok guys lets not get into a heated argument everyone has their different opinions and does it really matter that much !??!! i mean i think its fine for him to be dating her without any legal trouble because i see it very often I had the exact same question. It may bother you at first but talk about it and if you really love eachother then I doubt there will be any problems. At first I thought it was weird because I'm 17 and he's 14 but now the idea is sortof growing on me.
I would also guess she is aware of your fear that she'll repeat the mistakes of your youth.
The way she talks you would think she was 16 and she looks older than she is. I will be moving into year 13 while she is starting year 10.
Hi Tom, No, I don't personally believe the gap is too big.
However, you might want to check out the consent laws in your area because once you turn 18 (and they're 15) laws change, and you could face some legal trouble.
I think that society would generally not approve of that age gap, but does that matter to you?
