Is the problem that he is going to the movies with a girl at all or that she is a year older than him? I suppose it entirely depends on the situation, but on the surface the ruling seems a little irrational to me. You might have to meet him half way on things like this or else he's going to start lying to you and/or getting into far worse situations. As a parent of a teenager, there's not too much you can prevent in terms of who he'll go to the movies with. I would be thankful that he's open with you.

I agree but I remember telling my parent I was going to see a movie and never made it. His brother and I offered to take him and see a different movie he did like it so he did not get to go. Thanks for your response.

I think you were right to not allow your 15 year old go to the movies with a 16 year old girl. at this age there is a world of difference. 16 is so much more matur than a 15 year old. IF you are going to allow him to go to the movies with a giel she Should be a 15 year old too. In my opinion kids start dating to soon these days. If a boy is going to date he should be able to pay for the date himself with his own earnings and be able to drive for the date.

Very great point I was feeling bad for not letting him go because I don't let then do allot of thing but I know because I was 17 when I had him so I am very protective. Yes I said that his brother and I would drop him off and watch a different movie he didn't like that either. Thanks for your response.

Well if it was me, I wouldn't let him go to the movies with a 16 year old girl. Are you ready to be a grandma? lol Well I know you are not. He will get over it.
