How old is the right age to start dating
RANDY (Randy Carlson): Tell me, Brenda, at what age will you let your daughter single-date?
BRENDA (a parent who asked about her daughter dating): I guess I'm playing it by ear right now.
and i think telling kids you cant date til you are so old will make them date even more and they will probably want to do more than a person who can just date whenever, i just promised i wont do anything drastic, and my parents like the guy, he was like my best friend before we were dating so my parents already knew himi think most things that are PG13 and Rated R should wait until marrige but my lowest possible age is probably around 18, im gonna try to stay clean until im married and i will try to teach my kids the same thing i was taught i will let my daughter date when she seems to have the maturity and emotional capacity to do so.
first i think safety should be discussed and boundaries and guidlines as well as the ability to make thoughtful choices.
When Krissy, our second born daughter, was sixteen she had gone out for the evening with her boyfriend to a basketball game. and said, About an hour later, I was in my semiconscious state, sort of sleeping with one ear open, when I heard her come in, and in my opinion, that was fine because she had called me twice during the evening to explain the circumstances.Dear Kim, Thank you for your excellent question and for your patience in waiting for my response!It is a relevant question, in a society that pushes dating at such a young age.though i haven't had a boyfriend since the 5th grade...i would say 16 is the PERFECT age to go on actual dates.
