[1.]No rendezvous, phone calls, text messaging, etc. until I meet the kid and his parents.
[2.]Dating is for mating. Don't date anyone that does not meet the qualifications for you marrying him.
[3.]Don't date any man who is not passionate for God. Those types of fellas will not be passionate for you.
[4.]Sex is for marriage. Period.
[5.]You need to be a who person. Live and love life as though you will be single all your life. The man for you will envelope you like a glove.
[6.]Remind him that his body will fit into the bed of my pickup.
[7.]The relationship that you have with any man will change. That includes the relationship you have with me. Evaluate the fella's potential as well as his current performance.
[8.]Find out what the guys dreams and visions are. Assess how hard he is working at fulfilling them.
[9.]I am the best judge of character you have in assessing a man. Ask me anything you want about any fella that you might even consider.
[10.]While you are a teenager, you don't date anyone more frequently than you date me.


Do you agree or disagree?

It sounds good on paper. In real life, things don't always work this way.

Still, I agree with teaching your children to demand the very best of themselves. No sense raising children with a defeatist attitude.

Probably the most asinine thing I've ever read.

Threatening the boyfriend doesn't usually work. As upset as a lot of fathers get at the idea of their daughters dating a sleazebag, very few are actually willing to go to prison for murder over the issue, and in some of the few cases that make it to that stage, the daughter actually testifies against the father quite willingly, and then dad ends up at the mercy of much younger, stronger inmates with nobody to talk to during visiting hours.

[6.]Remind him that his body will fit into the bed of my pickup.

That was the beginning and end of our conversation. She will be 21 next month, it seems to have worked rather well.

By the way, when she left for college I decided that my role morphed from a regulatory role to one that was advisory. So I'm not sure of where you begin and end your advice. Some of it is appropriate for 13 year olds but the list gets smaller over time.





[5.]Live and love life as though you will be single all your life.

Definitely liked that one.

[7.]The relationship that you have with any man will change. That includes the relationship you have with me.


Another one I like.

[9.]I am the best judge of character you have in assessing a man. Ask me anything you want about any fella that you might even consider.

All dad's have delusions of grandeur.

[10.]While you are a teenager, you don't date anyone more frequently than you date me.

I like the idea, but it is kind of weird sounding rather creepy.

My father called all my BF's George. When they would correct him, he'd say, doesn't matter, you won't be around that long.

He would always wait until we were walking out the door and say in a nice calm voice, "Remember George. You are leaving with my only daughter."

Not only do I agree with every word, I suggest you teach a class to men, boys and the girls who will date them!

FYI my Dad was over-protective...completely backfired. Word from the daughters prospective.

That is awesome! hahaha. And I suppose he was correct, yes? None of them lasted long?
