Vision this scenario, you have just gotten off of work, you have had a horrible day, your head hurts, your feet are aching, and you have no idea what to cook for dinner. All of a sudden your 14 year old daughter comes busting in the door telling you about this gorgeous young man that just transferred to her school.

Now I know the first thing that pops into a parents mind is oh no not my baby! “She is too young to have a boyfriend; I am not ready for this”. Then 1001 questions pops into your head. What is his name? How old is he? Where does he live? Who are his parents? Have he ever been arrested? Does he have any children? Does he where his pants around his waist? The list of questions is endless.

Take a deep breath; the main thing is not to panic help is on its way. Here are the top three things to tell your daughter when she has a crush on someone.

1.  Let your daughter know in no uncertain terms that she is beautiful, intelligent, and deserves to be treated with the upmost respect. Explain to her that the key to being successful in anything she does is connected to loving herself and knowing herself worth. (Warning) this will not be affective if this is her first time she ever heard it from you. When young women have high self esteem they are less likely to tolerate unhealthy relationships of any kind.
