Talk to him and ask him questions about school, what he likes to do, what does his family like to do together, etc.
If she has to blame it on me for the early pick up thats fine. That sets the pace for later when she or he is able to drive. My daughter asked me once when she would be allowed to go out with the kids she hung around with.
Well, date age is such a personal opinion, however, I would explain to her you always have to meet her friends before she can go on a date.
but I guess I never felt real comfortable telling my parents.
But, I think my Dad knew, as the certain boy in question would call the house.
BUT I wish that my mom would have said NO, you can't see him anymore. NO you can't go out to the movies alone with boys at 15 yrs old.
She would have saved me a lot of emotional stress in my teenage years if she would have had more age appropriate rules and expectations.
You also get an idea of what kind of parents he has.
If your daughter objects to this then it really needs to be spelled out to her that you are not comfortable with the movie thing, yet, and explain to her she is not 16.
And, my Dad always made our home an 'open house' for all my friends to just hang out at, for boys and girls. but I was just too 'shy' to tell him I actually had a 'date' per say.
They and all my friends parents all knew each other anyway. So, it is GREAT that your daughter even told you about this. Just KEEP the lines of communication open for anything she wants to talk about... It was my own awkwardness..not trying to hide it from him.
I also told her when she's 16 she can date ONLY IF we meet the boy. But I will tell you, love her, let her know you love her and then love her even more. Family Coach I say go with the two who say give permission for a group date.
