As adults we know how difficult relationships can be. There are issues of immaturity, insecurities, and often lack of self-control. There are disagreements and arguments and even in many cases betrayal. In our search for the “right one” dating can be exciting and heartbreaking. Not to mention how hard it can be to focus on work and to stay positive about life when the relationship is going bad.
Now imagine, trying to handle all of this at age 17 or 13, or even younger? Add to that the temptations physically?
Parents, be careful in choosing the right age to allow your teens to date.
I personally don’t think a young lady is ready to date until she is at least 18. By that time she will know more or less who she is and what she wants in life and will most likely choose to wait a little longer to date, after witnessing all the drama her friends have been going through the past few years.
