If you are genuinely comfortable with your daughter and her boyfriend sleeping in the same room, let that guide your decision.

And everyone, including (like it or not) your kids, searches for it.Your four-year-old says that she has a “boyfriend.”Relax.Just because your daughter is chasing boys on the playground does not mean that she’s going to be boy-crazy later in life.Let her know that her threat is hurtful and that you don’t want to see this drive a wedge between you. “Tell her, ‘I promise to always respect your house rules if you respect mine,’” says Madison.Treating her like an adult, not like a kid being told what to do, will help.
