my daughter is from mars
Hello , this is awkward, this is my first posting. My name is Chuck dad of a soon to be 16 year old girl. My daughter is for the most part normal teen, but she has a boyfriend that is to controlingand as many teen boys way to horney!!! She has been dating him for 5 months and we have been through alot with them both. She says he is changing for the better I think he is only changing her. my wife and I try not to demand she not see him for fear that it will only drive her torward him. she is so obsesed with her social life she barly made it through freshman year of high school!! We are afraid sophmore year will be more of the same.We found out they had sex and I think that is part of the problem she thinks (in my opinion) that it must be love because of that.she cant seem to tear herself away from myspace or her selphone and when we try to open comunication she blows up if we ask her about whats going on in her life. She says we dont praise her enough but honestly its hard to find much to praise. She has an 8 year old brother that if he breaths near her she jumps all over him. we are seeing a counsler but she tells him everything is fine, and sometimes it is but it can change in a nano second. I guess I am trying to find out what we (my wife and I ) are doing wrong . Any suggestions would help.
