crown j inyoung dating - Boy and girl dating at 12
My husband and I have been discussing the answer to our daughter's question and we just don't know the right answer.
I don't want to be overly protective and strict like my parents were but I also don't want to be too permissive.
Make sure to act interested but not too interested in your teen's dating life with the hope that they will open up to you if they run into difficulties. Friends are marginally ok but not romance of any sort. If they don't experiment, they won't know how a relationship works in the real world.
They may have more trouble expressing their feelings. I believe that kids should be able to start "dating" at ages 13 or 14, if they want to.
I didn't sneak around and date either because I didn't want to get into trouble with my parents.
