My daughter, Shea is 15 and for the last 5 months dated a 14 yr old boy who is controlling, who she talks to, who's on her snap chat list, etc. He's flunking in school and in detention most of the time.
She's always been very smart, never had disciplinary issues. The problem is she let's him control her, and still cares about him even though I've made them beak up.
He has problems I'm convinced, but picture Eddie Haskell in a football uniform. Anyway, I'm concerned that my normally independent vibrant daughter is attracted to boys that treat her badly.
I need help getting her to care more about herself than others.
Important to note, she is an only child with a lost father that she didn't meet till she was 9. Unfortunately he's a player and still more interested in trying to get me than a relationship with Shea. I just don't want her to relive my mistakes and realize she is worth so much more. Help.
