My daughter started dating a 17 yr old senior last September. He is a nice boy, doesn't drink, smoke or take drugs. He treats her special.
The more my husband has been able to know him he seems to be very inmature for his age. He has a 16-20 hr job and when he isn't there he is at our house mostly 12 1/2 hours a day. He turned 18 this month. He tends to have to be with my daughter all the time. To the point, he comes in and wakes her up, makes her breakfast, makes sure she brushes her teeth, combs her hair and gets her medication out for her. This is when I am at work. If he has to go do an errands, he will pass the places and come and ask to take my daughter with him to do the errands. I will ask why didn't you do them on your way by. He said, "I wanted to get here." It is like every minute he needs to be with my daughter. We had to talk with her about this happening all the time. She told him that we don't want him around all the time. The other night I told him no earlier then 10AM. He said, can I stay an extra hour. I said no. He then, stood their with this look. Turned around, slammed my house door and speed off in the car.
My husband and I feel that he is consuming all her time. She doesn't see her friends. They do see his friends. We have to make plans, like we did this past weekend to visit her older sister. We stayed a long time to the point that to make sure he wouldn't be able to come over. We have plans to take her to a fair this weekend and to a day concert in a few weeks. We have not included him in these plans. I feel that this relationship is really controlling her. I am lost, never had to deal with a boy that was like this. My oldest daughter didn't care for boys until she was about 17.
