I can understand why you are worried about your daughter. The first step, if you have not done so already, is to take her to her GP for a full check up. She needs blood tests to see if there is an underlying cause for her symptoms such as glandular fever, anaemia or another blood disorder, an underactive thyroid gland, diabetes or other medical conditions requiring specific treatment. If her tests are negative the most likely problem is that she has suffered with a viral infection from which she is taking a long time to recover. Make sure she is eating well and that she is taking a little exercise every day. Encourage her to keep going to school, perhaps on a reduced timetable or with reduced homework if she seems excessively tired.
Mum Sparks Online Debate About Teen Daughter Sleeping With Boyfriend - Pretty 52
Share this article Share This immediately made me think that she had already started sleeping with Sean. I know that they must have had plenty of opportunity to do so, and my husband says I'm silly to act as if couples only have sex when they're left alone at night together. But I don't want to make it any easier for my daughter and her boyfriend to have sex, and allowing Chloe to stay over without saying anything is tantamount to giving them our permission. I have also started to wonder whether she would have told me if she was on the Pill. I have never intruded on her privacy before but recently I did find myself searching through her wardrobe the last time I cleaned her room. I felt ashamed of myself afterwards, but cannot help worrying and wanting to do what's best for her.
