I know this can be a worrying thing and as I dont know your daughter, i.e. what her friends are like, her hobbies and if she is a mature or young 14 wear old, it is hard to say. But I would just let her know that you know what its like to be a 14 wear old with a first boyfriend and that you are there. If you allow him to come into the home you can also keep an eye on them which will help to ease your worries without her thinking you dont trust her. I hope this helps because all teenagers are not the same. Good luck!
