Life Coach on 15 and 20 year olds dating

Handling religious e-mails


By Vicki Roberts

Life Coach


Dear Vicki,

My friends know I am not a religious person but many of them repeatedly forward religious e-mails to me. It annoys me. 


Dear Reader,

You have 2 choices: You can reply to the e-mails and let them know you prefer not to get those types of e-mails or just delete them. If you can, it’s best to just delete them.  


Dear Vicki,

My daughter is 15 and is dating a 20-year-old boy. He is very nice and I like him a lot. My friends are giving me a hard time about letting her date him but I feel like if I don’t allow it, they will see each other anyway.  Should I make them see each other behind my back?


Dear Reader,

I don’t know where to start.  He may be a nice guy but the age difference at their age is too great. When she is 20 and he is 25, it won’t be an issue but now it certainly is. You need to have a talk with both of them and let them know that as her parent, you need to protect your daughter and you don’t feel that letting them continue the relationship right now is in her best interest.  She needs friends her own age  (within a year or 2) and he should be looking for someone closer to his own age. If you catch them sneaking around to see each other then your daughter needs to be punished. Let her know in advance what her consequences will be and make them severe.

When I was 18 I was seduced by a woman 31,it taught me about most of the sexual parts of intercourse but none of the intamacy that goes with it.I was well into my 40's thill I was able to share intamacy in a relationship.
