That's the only worry that would arise is that he is what he is, 26. If you allow her to go to his parents house, talk to them. I know it sounds grown up to say you are dating, but most people-- including law enforcement-- will not view this as dating. We took the alternative,kissing goodnight parked in front of the house,only to have the garage light flicked on and off like a beacon!!! It is awesome that she is doing so well at her age and appears to be mature, just remember she is 14 and should act like a kid for a bit longer.

Make sure she knows that all avenues of communication are open and that you will respond in a non judgemental fashion.
