The issues that come up with teenage dating — FranklyStein

MaggieBenA few months ago, our “Good Parenting” columnist answered a question about a teenager who wanted to spend the night at her boyfriend's house. When we posted the column on Facebook, at least one parent was shocked that this was an issue.

This was one of those questions my husband and I weren't prepared for when our teens started dating. Last year, my daughter asked if her then-boyfriend could spend the night at our house after her junior prom so he wouldn't have to drive home. Since it was a special occasion with extenuating circumstances, we said yes, but we put them on separate floors and kept a close eye on them.
