...levels of intimacy for which they were not yet prepared. Our conversations helped them properly process mature topics with accurate information that allowed them to make sound decisions.
I thought I was strict about dating until my eldest daughter’s date arrived for their first date with his parents in the back seat. They accompanied them on every date that year.
