My 14 year old daughter wants to date a boy (16) who i know is using some drugs as well as hanging out with the wrong crowd. We have put on the breaks and advise her she will not see him outside of school. We live in a small community and have received feedback that everyone around her does not see this as a good fit. A lot of people are worried about her and have told her. She does not want to hear it and thinks everyone is wrong. I do not know what to do, we have a good relationship but I don't want her to sneak around to see him. She is very upset that i won't let her meet his parents as well as let him come to our house. I am Debating letting her find out on her own and risking she will get more attached, or forbidding her and dealing with the tantrum and loosing her trust.View Thread
