My friend, Dennis Rainey, has written a good book, Interviewing Your Daughter’s Date, which covers this topic in depth.
But to give you some quick insights, let me share with you a few key steps from my experience.
Have your daughter prepared to tell any guy that asks her out to call you first before answering him.
This helps her know that you are expecting to be her first line of defense and gives her guidance on how to respond to a guy’s invitation. So you might invite the young man, and even his dad, to your home.
Your job is to help your daughter, not just make him feel good about himself.
