    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I am a single Dad trying to be open minded about my 15 year old daughter dating.I don't know if its just the Dad in me but i think I am being over protective I am worried all the time is that normal

    You can never be to over protective of a 15 yr old girl. At 15, all children are raging hormones. Your daughter will be no exception. Unless you want to be a single GRANDFATHER, supporting your child and grandchild, protect, protect, protect. Remember when you were 15-19. You sniffed everything your could. A girls's protective daddy meant you didn't get any and your girl daughter needs that right now.
    She'll challenge you and "hate" you, but in the end they are still your daughters and they'll alway love you. Welcome to the worry stage of teenagers.
    My mother always said, "Boys are easier. You only have one penis to worry about. Girls, you have to worry about every penis in town." She was right. My daughter is 25.

    Good Luck

    Be friendly to your daughter. Talk to her as a friend and express your concern politely and calmly.
