Almost 13 year old wants boyfriend to sleep overnight

My daughter turns 13 this year . She has had a boyfriend for 7 months, they are very close and she has told me in confidence that they have started to experiment with eachother sexually. Now they want to know if they can have a sleepover in the same bed with the door open and promised that nothing sexual will happen. What do I do? I appreciate their honesty but I think they are too young. Has anyone else been in this situation before?

Hey @Worriedmum2020 thanks for sharing what your concerns have been around your daughters relationship. I'm sure there are other parents here who have been through similar experiences and would relate to the worries you have. I just wanted to say that it's really positive that your daughter is being honest and open with you, it's a good sign of closeness and trust which is so important in these teens years. 

 

I also thought you might want to check out these articles we have on teen romance and sexual relationships 

 

Hope to hear back from you soon
