Our expert says:
simply put, no you are not being too strict your looking out for your daughter's safety. Whist many young people use things like mixit to speak with people they know, there can be at times more sinister people out there who pretend to be of a certain age when they are not. So wanting to meet this guy first is the right thing to do.
Your daughter trying to blackmail you - as that is what she is doing emotionally should be given short shrift! You are the parent and in this instance I do not think you are being controlling or over-protective, you are being sensible. Maintain your boundaries and if after saying no she defies you then you will need to think about appropriate consequences to this. Your daughter is saying let me go and do this or I will go and do it anyway and that is not acceptable!
So my advice is that either she allows you to meet him or forget it. Sometimes a parents love has to be of the tough kind.
