  1. As the dad of an 11 year old girl my answer would be, “Doesn’t matter, I’m the Dad and I’m right” Not sure how long that’ll work but until it doesn’t, I’m sticking with it.

  2. I agree with Brittany’s response, and as for Steve’s…no young man has had the courage to say things like that about my daughter in front of me.

    and they darn well better keep it that way!
