16 yr old stuck on old boyfriend
My sixteen year old daughter is stuck on an old boyfriend. First, they have had sexual relations previously. This was her first. They break up and get back together. I don't think he very good to her either. He makes attempts, then he does something weird and she reacts, then they are apart but never completely severs the relationship.
I have talked to her and him. I have tried to let it play out and keep a close distance to the situation. I have also put my foot down, but that does not work either. I have done everything including explaining to her that being with him stresses her out even more and it's time to let it go. Nothing seems to make it better. I am worried about her self esteem and how this will influence her outlook on boys/men too. He does this "I will do anything for you" kind of thing and does until they are together, then he does strange things like breaking up on Myspace portfolio and tells her he likes other girls. I know they are young, but I see what he does (I see more detail) as minupaltive and too intense.
