Caring parents try to do all they can to be there for a child who has questions or wants to discuss anything.
It's sometimes hard for parents to find a balance between hovering over a teen and giving them too much freedom.
A teen does not learn how to date in the classroom and most likely has only picked up on some of the basics, like respecting someone’s personal space, at home.
But without experience in a romantic relationship, teens don't know what to expect.
It just recently happened to us; our 15 year old daughter had her first boyfriend.
As much as you know the time is coming, it takes your breath away when it does happen.
Here are some of the most common dating rules and how they can be used most effectively to guide teens through the world of dating: Pros: You can set an age where most teens have a good maturity level and are able to think independently.
Cons: Not all teens mature at the same rate, so even though your teen comes to that age, he or she may still not be able to handle it.
That time will be here before you know it and as the parent you have the privilege of setting the tone and guiding your young person through this exciting time in their young life.
One of the most important things for parents to remember is to communicate with their teen.
Many teens will not admit it, but a parent's input plays a significant role in their lives.
Here are five things every parent should know: While some teens tend to be interested in dating earlier than others, romantic interests are normal during adolescence.
Girls are more vocal about the dating interest and tend to be interested in a greater degree at a younger age, but boys are paying attention also.
