Unless you are just a vindictive person, it is in the heart of every one of us to want to forgive those who sincerely seek it.

My daughter is 15 and her dad lives over 300 miles away. Her dad & I had the birds & bees talk with her together. I think that it went very well. But because her dad has not fully grown up to real man status & is not here for when she begins to date I need to know how to protect her from making the same mistakes that I made.
