So I’m a 48yr old single dad of a 13 and 17yr old. On top of that I’m also a 2/1 miner and work away. While I’m away my boys look after themselves and have done for some years. We have no family around us, just ourselves. So I work away to give my boys a good head start in life. They do amazingly well, cook clean and get to school and work. So we’ll that my oldest has just been accepted to the army to do and electrical engineering degree. The youngest also gets As and Bs at school. However the oldest has now got a full time job in a nursery until his army acceptance dat in April. He also has a full time girlfriend that sleeps at our house most nights and all get along well. But today my 13yr old told me he has a girlfriend and wants her to sleep over. I’m guessing that he wants to be more like his big brother. But I’m not ok with that. And have told him not until I get home and then in seperate rooms. The question is, am I living in the 70s with old school moral values that I’m trying to imbue upon my kids, in a world that’s completely different to the one I grew up in. Or or am I doing the right thing. I don’t know if 13 is an ok age for a female sleepover or if I’m being “old”.
