Simple rules to dating my teenage daughter

I knew she was having sex with someone so i feared the worst and opened the door. She was squealing and he was breathing profusely so they both didn't notice me.

I could hear his every movement and all i could do is cry. I was scared so I just quickly went into our room and faked sleep.

It seemed to me that the divorce had been a good thing for my daughter.

— Dear Son, Dating is a tricky thing and doing it right is difficult. And who your wife is will determine your future family and so forth and so on. Here are a few expectations I have for you when it comes to dating: 1. You should always make sure you take her to a place you know she will feel comfortable & enjoy.

I could go on and on about all the things I did that I thought were being a good mother. Seeing my sister die at only 35, the sober reality of how short life really is hit me in the face like cold water. She once told me during a particularly hard time in High School "If it weren't for Joe, I'd be on drugs or pregnant." I was so happy that he took delight in listening to all of her teenage problems, give her counsel and advice.

A strong desire to experience life and live fully came over me. I did not want to model: "stay together for the sake of the children" to my daughter the way my mom did to me. No, I wanted to model a strong women with self respect and courage to create a happy life. In only three months after the divorce (I guess I was pretty naive and "raw meat") I hooked up with a very manly man who paid so much attention to me and seemed to be everything I ever wanted. I was so glad she had a strong male father figure because her read dad was not.

I have discussed this with her to get a picture of how she gets on with others.
