Man I thought I was going to be able to handle my daughter when she got older... or at least handle the day boys came knocking on the door.
Well that day has arrived and I handled it poorly. Let’s just say I made an ass out of myself.
My question to all parents or girls that have lived through it is this: how did you handle your daughters through their boy days and keep her out of trouble and keep her mind focused on school and not boys.
The last thing I want to do is force my daughter into a boys arms by saying she can't talk to him or trying to control everything she does and who she does it with...
I know I raised her right, but all teenage girls I have ever know, judge themselves by the attention they get from boys... and that leads to being manipulated. Every teenage boy learns to use that to his advantage to get what he wants and you know what that is...
I realize I am not ready for this and hope I don't make the wrong decisions. And advice from anyone who has been there, or raised a child through the horrible 4 years of high school will help a great deal.
thx for your time.
