What do you think, is mom overreacting?
My 19 yr old daughter wants to visit her 19 yr old boyfriend out of state. They met when he came to visit, her school in the spring semester. They had brief, on and off contact until about 2 months ago, when they spent a lot of time on the phone and Skype. So when she asked me if she could visit him, I flat out told her no, and gave her a list of reasons that she can't go. The reasons included self-respect, length of time that she knows him, distance, appropriateness, and safety issues. She came back with, I'll be careful and I'm going. I pondered for a few hours then decided that if she was making an adult decision then when she walked out of the door, she was to leave my door keys in my hand.
