Once they hit 16, good luck with "rules".  You need to make that impact when they're 4 or 5 or 6.

That said, my older daughter always followed the rules, and my younger one never did.

You let your daughter date when she was 6?
They sure do grow up fast these days!

I joked with my wife that our daughter can date when she can kick my ass.  She's now a junior black belt.

I didn't have to worry about my daughter when she was dating. She's a tough little shiat who will not take anybody's crap.

I'm all for raising strong and independent kids, but it's kinda my job as Dad to make the rules and enforce them.
 
2017-09-11 03:40:31 AM  
My "rule" is to trust my daughter's judgment and good sense enough to expect her to avoid picking  a jackass to date. So far ithat rule worked out very well.

When my sisters and I were HS age our parents didn't bother with dating rules. I was big enough to kick the shiat out of most adult men, my middle sis was too focused on "med school or bust" to notice boys, and my youngest sis was going ignore any rule she didn't like.

Mine are simple. Don't use your obvious strength advantage to abuse her (or I will use my obvious dad advantage to remove you from existence) and don't get her pregnant (although that one is equally on her).

So much bullshiat in this article and thread.  The macho 'fit my criteria or you can't date my daughter' shiat and the cliched shotgun wielding father is indeed stupid.  It's no more stupid though, than the idea that a parent doesn't get to say 'That person isn't someone you should be romantically involved with'.

Normal teenage kids are capable of making good choices and spotting unhealthy or dangerous situations, but they aren't as good at it as adults and even adults fark that up sometimes.  Pretending that you are some sort of super parent who somehow distilled all possible wisdom into their child by the age of 15 and no longer has to be involved is just narcissism, and a sign that you have forgotten all the terrible decisions you made in your 20s let alone your teens.

All my daughters are too ugly, weird, or wrong-sexual for "dating". This may be fortunate as I don't have any rules, and they wouldn't follow them anyway.

Actually, I do have a rule : I'm not paying. But I don't think they've grasped quite what that means yet.

Good point. Placing reasonable rules/restrictions on kids is called parenting. Some people certainly overdo it (e.g., you can't date/hang out with that kid unless they jump through my arbitrarily defined hoops), but boundaries are necessary.

Neither of my daughters are old enough to date yet, but when they reach that age, there will be only one rule:

You arent allowed to date my daughter.

How do I plan on enforcing that? Easy...keep them so goddamn busy, they wont have time for boys. Between volleyball, soccer, basketball, hockey, track, swimming, martial arts, dance, homework, jobs, and anything else they are interested in doing, they both will have totally full schedules. Exactly like I planned it.

Pretty much my point. I raised my kid to have agency, to set her own boundaries, and to insist on being respected. Would have been the same if she'd been a boy... but everyone would have expected that, so it's not notable.

using a thin veneer of 'girl power!'™ to spread shiatty ideas to parents is asinine.

No. Asserting that you are a decent parent means giving your kid(s) the leeway to make (and learn from) their own judgment calls, just like you did. And it's accepting that you might just be wrong about those judgment calls, and she might be right.

You win man you are clearly far more enlightened than the rest of us who think that there might be a reason why we don't consider 15 year old kids adults.

So in your opinion leveraging the public support of feminism to lend credence to bad ideas that are at best only tenuously associated with it is OK?  You don't mind when people water down the ideals of an important social movement just to get likes on facebook?

Sorry that I have higher standards than you.
