I am currently in this relationship, and I don't see any problems, other than the fact that we don't go to the same school, and I'm not allowed in his car, even though he is an extremely responsible driver with a license.
My 13 year old daughter has been "dating" her boyfriend for the last 4 months. I will not allow her to go to his house or go on dates with him but I did allow him to come to our house (they have to sit in the loungeroom under supervision) and only one or two days a week.
I have been making a point to make sure my daughter still hangs out with her girlfriends as not to be totally consumed by this boy. Perhaps talk to a domestic violence support group of some kind.
I actually think it is illegal for a 17 year old to date a 13 year old, I would talk to his parents first and ask them if they know their son is going out with a 13 year old and if they are know talk to your daughter school councilor or even go into a police station and get some info.
Also have a talk with your daughter tell her the ugly truth, that 17 year old boys are not interested in holding hands, and once he gets what he wants it is highly unlikely that he will stay with her. The sooner the better, it's not a relationship, he's way too old and there is a massive difference in growing up from 13 to 17.
Is it illegal for a 13 year old to go out with a 17 year old in a SEXLESS relationship?
:\My friend's sister (13) is dating a 17 year old guy.
I migh seem like im smothering my daughter but ahe doesn't mind following the rules as they have always been their.
If i was you i would probly restrict outside activities and take her phone from her chamge her number and get rid of the boyfriend . I wish to God my mother had stepped in, but...have never had a close open relationship. But she never stepped in, or half heartedly did, and you know what?
I would keep her away from him as much as possible.
