    It is not my business who my children date, just as it is not their business who I choose to date. If they don't like it, they can keep their opinions to themselves.

    Things like this can break a family apart. I know from experience. If you have something to say about them, say it. Then thats it done, its been said, they know how you feel, its up to them.

    I believe in honesty , and I let my mom know when I thought she was making a mistake. I did the same with my best friend . I did the same with my daughter (not that it did any good). I think you should always feel like you can be honest about things like that. If they don't like it or don't want to hear it, usually it means they have already seen it for themselves .

    I had to tell my brother that his girlfriend was cheating on him... she was a very good liar, he didn't break up with her until there was a picture of her online kissing someone else.

    People hate to hear anything nagative about who they are datin, even if it's from someone close and love them. They may even stop talkin to you!!! love make people blind sometimes its best to let them see on their own. (Some times that can be very hard).

    isn't that what being a parent is all about? or do you want to deprive your children the knowledge of your experience?

    Best to be honest. Don't force somebody to breakup, just let them know your opinion. People are often misjudged.

    telling family members about these stuff is not bad, but seriously, It's the person's choice, his/her heart loved that person, he/she and no one else can change that feeling!!

    I would stay out of it unless the person they were dating was abusive or cheating on them. Then I would step in.

    It's better to be honest with the other person. The other person might resent it, but they would keep it in the back of their minds.
