A Question for the Moms
I have a question for the Moms. My BF’s daughter is 13 and will be a Freshman in high school next year. My BF still insists on tucking his daughter into bed and giving her a kiss. I know every parent is different, but my parents stop doing this when I was 11. I still said good night and gave each a hug and kiss before putting myself in bed.
The reason for my concern is that I do not feel she is maturing at a normal rate for a girl her age. She still says stuff like “Duckey and Horsey.” Is this normal?
She doesn’t have many friends and the ones I have met seem to be more mature. They also avoid spending time with her outside of school. She called to invite one of her girlfriends over and the girl said she couldn’t come because she had to clean the bathroom. Clean the bathroom?
When she does have a friend over, my BF goes up to her room every hour on the hour. He will sit on the floor and talk to them. I think it is wise to check on kids from time to time, but how much trouble can two girls alone in a room get into? There is no phone, the computer has parental control, and she doesn’t have cable. If I were the friend, I would be asking myself, what’s up with her father.
I know this really isn't my business because it's his child. But, I would like to know...am I reading too much into this?
