16 dating 13

Wherever people got the notion that kids should be dating while in school simply baffles me.

I was shocked that she would even think about the concept of dating at such a young age.

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.

My 13 year old boy already has a girlfriend but with no sexual activity.
