Mormon beliefs dating
We are concerned she is thinking about becoming a Mormon, and we need information on how best to handle this situation.” OUR RESPONSE: We often receive inquiries from concerned parents whose son or daughter is dating a Mormon.What makes these situations more difficult than others is the emotional element that physical attraction and teenage/young adult insecurity plays into the equation.This approach is outlined in the following steps discussed below: 1.
A young adult approached with an authoritative parental attitude, may react with defiant rejection of all parental input (common in strong-willed children) or resentful compliance in which your daughter may give lip-service to your desires, without heart commitment.
However, if your daughter feels like you do not trust her ability to run her life and make her own decisions, she may view your opposition to her dating relationship as a challenge to her autonomy and may rebel further by reacting negatively to everything you suggest.
Thus, we recommend that the best way to approach your daughter in this situation is to emphasize that while you have “concerns” about her choice to date this Mormon man, you will always love her as your daughter, no matter what choice she makes in regard to this relationship.
