How do I tell my parents I want to be able to date?
Well, i’m 14 and an upcoming freshmen. I have been “with” this guy since the 8th grade. I want to tell my parents, but i’m scared. I’m the oldest in the family and have been considered the “2nd mother” since my mom always work. I’ve had 4.0 GPA throughout my middle school year and I take care of my 3 siblings daily. A lot of people say kids my age don’t know what we’re doing and in my point of view, I just want to try out “new” things. I’ve tried talking to my mom about it but she always ask, “Why do you want one?.” I’ve tried many times, but i’m too nervous. Especially my dad. Oh and this guy is a year older than I am but in the same school grade as me. He’s always gotten into honor roll and a 4.0 GPA. He’s very nice and knows his limits. What should I do? Please help, thank you 🙂

tell them you have a date

Answer by Junior
Common really? Nobody asks their parents for permission to date. Just go for whoever you like without fearing. I mean come on, what can they do? Make you break up with him? Doubt it… Sides you are a freshman, lots of people start dating since they are 6th graders and stuff. XD

Tell whichever one you’re most comfortable with that you’re going somewhere with him, and tell them how wonderful he is. Make him seem like a really smart guy who’s going somewhere in life, and your parents will accept him. It’s not that you just want a boyfriend, it’s that you like this guy and you want to be closer with him, you want a relationship that isn’t just friends, because he’s special to you, and you’ve decided you don’t want to date anyone else.

Sweetheart — You may only be 14 in years, but caring for your siblings on a daily basis has matured you. Your grades are great, keep up the good work. Seeing that your boyfriend also is a great student, tells alot about both of you. No wonder you are attracted to each other.
I’m the mother of 4, one boy and three girls, so I do know some about your problem. Try to ask your parents if it would be ok for you to date in groups or one set of parents could drive you two somewhere and pick you two up at the appointed time. I allowed my girls to group date and also dropped them off at movies, Miniature golf or things they were interested in. Maybe he could hang out @ your house for a day so your parents could get to know him.
Good Luck.

You sound like the perfect daughter, sister and student
just tell your parents that you like this guy and that you both are good
students and that you being in this “relationship” with this guy won’t affect
your school or relationship with your siblings. They should know that you are
mature enough to determine if you want to date or not.
