Dear Sarah,
We are very generous to allow you on group dates with a chaperone. Asking for more is pushing your luck. I believe you that he is wonderful, but you are both just starting your ride on the hormone roller coaster so we are not ready to allow you to be in a situation that would allow trouble. I am your mother, not your friend and I don’t have to be fair. Yes, you can put color in your hair. I know you are trying to figure out who you are and it must be hard to feel like an individual when you have four brothers and sisters. I hope that someday you will see yourself the way I see you – smart, beautiful, funny, caring and absolutely wonderful! I love you.

  1. actually I think that you’re being more than fair already. Gosh I hope I handle it as well when my girls start dating (in their 30s obviously).

  2. You’re doing a great job! Hang it there! I made the mistake of thinking that my sons would’t need as much protection as a girl would as a young teen. (Well, I actully only made the mistake with the first…)
    I had not thought about the possibility of a boy being taken advantage of by an older girl…. now I know.
