You might have your own rules for your daughter—when she has to be home, what she is and isn’t allowed to do, and so on. If he’s driving, get the make and model of his car and the license plate number. It might seem overbearing and it will probably embarrass your daughter, but ask yourself this question.If his parents have their own set of rules for him (or if they don’t), knowing that ahead of time can prevent some unfortunate misunderstandings down the road. If your daughter didn’t return from her date, wouldn’t you want to be able to give the police as much info as possible?If the kid dreams of becoming an entrepreneur or a doctor, you might overlook the long hair and tattoo, right?Your upbringing shapes who you become later in life, and getting to know a little bit about his parents will give you a sense of who he is, even if you don’t get to meet them in person.And you get to learn something about the kid who’ll be taking your daughter out—the sports or music he may be into, or even the video games he plays. ) How long has he worked there, and what does he like and dislike about it?Even if your family is not religious, you should know if your daughter’s boyfriend is! Knowing what he does for work and how he views the job can give you real insights into his character and where he’s going in life (if anywhere).In fact, I still bug my Dad to take me on a date, except I hope it's to places like Disney World or a major music concert these days.
