Dating a looser
Making demands is likely to backfire because your teen is at an age when it's developmentally appropriate to assert her individuality.
Approaching her with love and concern is crucial to persuading her to stop dating a loser.
Talk to your teen about what constitutes a healthy relationship.
Explain to her that someone who really loves a partner doesn't talk down to her, pressure her to do acts that make her uncomfortable, leave her if she says no to sex or ask her to cut off her friends.
If you've been in a relationship with a similar partner, share your experience and explain to her what you lost by being with that person.
We have a somewhat complicated situation since, as a foreigner, my husband depends on me for a residency permit in my country.Let her know that a partner who truly loves and respects her will want to spend time with her family -- provided the family treats him well -- then proceed to treat him well.You might have to be nice through your teeth, but chances are the loser won't want to spend much time in your presence anyway.No one likes to hear that their special someone isn’t all that great.She might be defensive, feel unsupported, or even become angry with you.
