DSD (15) is in her first real relationship. They seem to be doing great. We had our talks from sex, and "being ready", to developing trust and mature feelings in your relationship. I know she sees things a little differently, and I respect that. They seem to be very fond of each other, and I worry about them moving too fast on a physical front before they developed meaningful intellectual and emotional bond. On one hand, they are almost never alone. On the other hand, I don't want to be watching her every move until she is 35. I do want her to be independent, happy, comfortable and informed on whatever happens. I thought that she might enjoy a "third person" perspective on relationships.<br><br>
So... is there anything that your kids read on the subject that they found helpful, interesting and informative?

I highly recommend "Girltalk: All the Stuff Your Sister Never Told You" By Carol Weston.<br><br>
My mom got this book for my sisters and I when I was a teen and I loved it. It covers dating/relationships, as well as LOTS of other topics that a teenage girl may be thinking about, but might not want to discuss with a parent. Several of my friends also enjoyed reading/skimming the book when at my house.
