17 year old boy dating 13 year old girl quality of life in childhood epilepsy validating the qolce
There was a letter to my daughter from a 17-year-old boy. We don't know if we trust her now, and we wonder what's wrong with a 17-year-old who would be interested in someone so much younger. When she came home today, she went straight to her room and won't talk to us. I would guess that she has kept this relationship from you because she knows that you would disapprove of it because of the disparity in their ages.
I think the age difference is too much, but i don't know if i should have him break it off. Even at that age they know that 'they are only dating a younger girl because they couldn't get someone in their grade to date them'. If age of consent in your state is particularly strict..are more than 2 years apart. Even most of those states listed as no "close in age" exemption statute have one by judicial decisions.
I would be uncomfortable if my child were the 13 year old.
Adults and students *in the same high school* date all the time with age differences. The prisons don't have room for all the teens who violate this law.
Find out (I guarantee it's above 13) and make sure your son knows how serious underage sex is these days. But as long as her parents are ok with it, I would let it go.
He could be branded as a sex offender for life, literally. I was also 13 when I started highschool(late bday but I did turn 14 the 1st week of school).
It's illegal to HAVE SEX with someone who's 13.
