At that time she said that she didn't feel ready for the responsibility of a sexual relationship, and that Sean wasn't pressuring her.But when I opened up a conversation last week about whether she would stay over at Sean's house while his family was away, Chloe got very stroppy with me, telling me that what she did was none of my business, and that she resented being treated as if she were still a child.
A teenager suffering from a phobia of toilets has died from a heart attack.
Emily Titterington, 16, died after going eight weeks without a bowel movement which left her with a compressed her chest cavity and displaced organs.
But I don't want to make it any easier for my daughter and her boyfriend to have sex, and allowing Chloe to stay over without saying anything is tantamount to giving them our permission.
I have also started to wonder whether she would have told me if she was on the Pill.
Her GP Dr Alistair James said that Emily’s mother, Geraldine, 59, had battled with her daughter to be medically examined in the period leading up to her death, but her protests were in vain.
Dr James told the coroner that he had prescribed laxatives but had not examined Emily's abdomen.
Forbidding teenagers from courses of action they have committed to can result in unexpected, frequently unpleasant consequences. Whatever action you decide upon needs to be in the spirit of alliance and co-operation, not controlling Chloe or being obstructive. Inviting Sean's parents to dinner to get to know them better seems like a really good idea.
Chloe probably just needs reassurance that you have other priorities with them than her relationship with their son.
This immediately made me think that she had already started sleeping with Sean.
I know that they must have had plenty of opportunity to do so, and my husband says I'm silly to act as if couples only have sex when they're left alone at night together.
So he's probably a lot more sexually experienced than her too.
