How do I tell my parents I want to be able to date?

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.

answer by HIS!
Depends on the laws of the state he’s in. But if a father is “to provide child support” does not mean that he is not obligated to support the child. Parents support their children. Enough said!

Yes, based only on a false allegation.


How do you console a child who is able to contribute with a sibling, but not the others?

question of cgspitfire : How do you console a child when mother speaks to a sibling, but not the other ?
We had my husband with children (from 6 “Suzie” and 11 “John”) for six weeks this summer. Mama John sent with a prepaid cell phone and called him every night on that or on the phone at home. Although Suzie wanted to talk to her mother, Mama never asked, or remained on the phone long enough to talk to her. When we called the home phone or her cell phone, Mama “no time” to talk to her. Needless to say, Suzie is very disturbed by this. We do not say anything negative about the children’s mother, but how do you console a child who does not understand why Mama does not want to talk to her? My husband tried to talk his ex about their behavior, but she thinks we are “over protection” of our daughter and do not care about our son. That’s not true! We both love of children very much, but hate to hurt either one of them for a lack of attention to see! Does anyone with a less than attentive parents? Any advice in dealing with Suzie without their mother would be welcome down console, we have already tried talking to her about her behavior with the children. It favors obvsiously John about Suzie and we have located specific incidents, but they do not looks so. We even have professionals sitting in family counseling and tell her that she try to give more attention to Suzie needs, but that did not mit.Was always helped custody, we get custody of Suzy (she wants to live with us), but we live in two different states and it is a long battle with no end in sight gewesen.John at this time is high-functioning autistic Sun Mom says he needs to be protected from everything. Suzie, on the other side of “normal” and do not need so much attention. Even the pros have said that we John normal as possible (which in our house, but needed the autism as an excuse in their homeland) treat müssen.Was want me talking to his ex-wife, we do not talk, it was because I’m confirmed. It is not a good situation for me, things carefree and polite to her mother, rather than trying to start a fight … something that the children do not need to be Best Answer:

reply Rawrrrr
you must have both a serious talk with ex about how she is treating her daughter. This is not fair, and the child is not right. If they do not want to bothered with the daughter then perhaps you should consider the daughter or both of the children live with you.
