Advice on 15 Year Old Daughter

Hello - I need advice on what to do in a situation regarding my 15 year old daughter. She has been sneeking around behind my back to talk to and to see a boy that her dad and I have already told her we didn't want her to have any contact with anymore. The times that she sees him are few and far between because he lives about 30 minutes away but she has started talking to him recently on her cell phone and online.

My 14 Year Old Daughter Has a 16 Year Old Boyfriend.

I have a very mature and responsible freshman daughter who has been "dating" a 16 1/2 year old junior. She sees him at school and talks to him on the phone. I have let her go to the mall on a weekend afternoon with him and he has been over the house 1 time. I have talked to her about sex and feelings and everything in between. So far she is showing me that I can trust her. Is it wrong to let her hang out with him at the mall, see a movie or just have him come over for a few hours (supervised)? I feel as though I am keeping my eyes...
