Dating Good. Dating Bad. A Parent's Dilemma

By May 19, 2011

Follow me on:

Ah, the choices for parents. Is dating okay for your teens or not okay? It's not always the easiest question to answer. After all, this is your little boy or girl we're talking about. On one sense, you want to allow them to become more undefended, grow up and meet the man or woman that God has planned for them. On the other hand, you're not sure if you want them to meet at 16...or that you really want them to grow up at all.

So when parents are faced with the idea of their teens dating, it can be a difficult realization. It's important that parents look at how they feel, what ground rules they want to set, and actually talk to their kids about dating. Conversations can really go a long way to easing a parent's mind about allowing their teen into the world of dating.
