Young teen dating tips
Dating doesn’t always go as you expect; your child may need someone to come to if they have a problem.
You need to keep the lines of communication open and also reiterate to them how they should treat people and expect to be treated in a relationship.
Feel free to interact with those of the opposite gender.
It is not inappropriate; talking to someone does not mean you have a “crush on them” nor does it mean they have one on you. You do not need to flirt in order to have fun with those of the other sex.
So here goes: Your quality and purpose of life is not determined by whether or not you date or get married.
While you may think your teen already knows how to date, they probably don’t.
When it comes time to meet your teen’s date, be kind and respectful.
While you may want to give a lecture on the rules; their date is not the one you should be talking to.
If you have taught them about a proper relationship, then you should trust them to make their own decisions.
Only intervene if you think the relationship is dangerous for your child.
