I think asking if it is "bad" is maybe not the correct term, and really, each case will be different depending on the individuals.

(And make sure that the legality of the ages isn't an issue, first and foremost, in your state).

I have told Jordan she will not be going to his house or going out on "dates" with him and when he is here they have to be in eyesight! I know what 16 year old boys want but I worry if I try to banish him she will rebel and go behind my back. I was a teen mum myself to my daughter, I had her when I was 19!

I was a teen mum myself to my daughter, I had her when I was 19!I think you are handling things well, and I can understand that your daughter likes this boy and likes the idea of dating etc and being able to "date" helps them learn how to form relationships in the adult world, and I think it's pretty normal for the younger ones to be interested in the older ones, however I must say I find it a little concerning that a 16 year old would have an interest in a 12 year old... It's probably not a good idea - since when the 16 year old becomes 'legal' for consensual sex at age 17, the 12 year old (now 13) is still under the age of consent, and even consensual relations could result in criminal charges. However, there is little a 16 year old would have in common with a 12 year old. In the event that it was purely platonic, even the suggestion of any sort of sexual contact could potentially put the 16 year old in jeopardy, for life.d be troublesome.
