Okay, so I was born in 1949, raised very strictly, didn't date until I was 18y.o., unless you count my kissing cousin from France who hasn't written to me since I reminded him of that wonderful Summer (le sigh!), no sex until 20y.o. easy child has been invited to go to a restaurant (not the romantic kind) with a young boy who will be celebrating his 14th birthday with this event. She will be 13 next month. As I understand it, they will be alone during dinner and will be joined by a group of friends afterwards at the movies. They are both very mature for their age, both honor roll students. I am always over-reacting to the morals of the young. He happens to be from Zimbabwe, father very strict. Our instincts have been to say NO. This invite is for this Thu. What would you do?
