Daughters and dating

When your daughter starts dating, encourage her to bring her boyfriend home for you to meet – maybe even invite him for a meal.

  • Take the time to get to know him
  • Don’t automatically dismiss any boyfriend as not good enough for your daughter
  • Don’t tease, argue with, or put down your daughter in front of him, even in jest
  • Make sure you are available when your daughter wants to talk about him
