My child is 19 now, but last year when she was 18 she was involved with a 34 year old drug addicted man. I confornted both of them but they both denied it and made it seem like I was crazy. Now that she is 19 her current boyfriend has told me that she admitted to him that she was in fact involved sexually with this man and he is still pressuring her to use drugs. This man is a felon, con-man and I feel that he is trying to get my daughter to become a crackhead because he hates me for confronting and embarrassing him. Is there anything I can do to keep him away from my daughter before its too late?
Country relating to Question: United States
I called the police last year but they say I cant get a restraining order in Kentucky.
Hello,Thank you for using JA. Please don't shoot the messenger, but once someone becomes a legal adult they are beyond their parent's control and can associate with whoever they choose to, even if it is not a good decision. The exception is if the parent has a legal guardianship over the child through the courts because the daughter had been declared legally incompetent. If daughter felt that he was some type of threat to her, than she is the only one who could file for a restraining order at this point..If you knew that the individual was in possession of illegal drugs, you could always notify local law enforcement and they could potentially catch him with anything illegal..
