There was a letter to my daughter from a 17-year-old boy. We don't know if we trust her now, and we wonder what's wrong with a 17-year-old who would be interested in someone so much younger. When she came home today, she went straight to her room and won't talk to us. I would guess that she has kept this relationship from you because she knows that you would disapprove of it because of the disparity in their ages.When she got home we asked her if she had given out our home address and phone number to any boys and she said yes. My husband and I got married when we were 18 and had our daughter when we were 17. You do have reason to be concerned about a relationship between a 17-year-old boy and your 14-year-old, eighth-grade daughter.
Your daughter probably will insist that it's none of your business..it is.This is not a time for anger, blame, shame or punishment.
