Who's the Ideal Boyfriend?

Young teenage girls are all too gullible when it comes to a lot of things. They are too nice, too trusting, and are yet to find out how to be a good judge of character. Because of this, they also need all the advice they can get, especially where young teenage boys are concerned.

As a parent, you are one of the more influential persons in your daughter’s life. While you may not force her to think in a certain way, you still have the power to influence her actions, especially if you have established a close relationship with her from the very beginning.

Mothers can usually tell what the standards for a good boyfriend are. But in case you are still at odds as to how the ideal boyfriend for your daughter should be, here are a few good qualities that should never escape your attention:

  • Future-oriented
  • Optimistic
  • Fairly intelligent
  • Trustworthy
  • Reliable

Your daughter may already have her own set of standards when it comes to the type of boy she wants to date. Do not stop her from setting her own standards. The rule of thumb here is to let her discover romance on her own.

Letting your daughter experience romance doesn’t mean you will standby and allow her to fling herself with the "bad boys", so to speak.

Nevertheless, the qualities stated above will help you guide your daughter in finding someone who will be worthy of her affections.
