One mother told me of the explicit text messages her son was receiving from a girl at all hours of the night. He basically told her that she was not nice and he didn’t really like her anymore. I have been closely monitoring to see if Glenn continues her controlling and mean ways.Admittedly I am not friends with anyone who has teenage girls, for all I know they see boys behaving in the exact same manner. I would not tolerate my own children talking to me in such a disrespectful manner and I certainly would not take it from one of their friends. Then I ignored the next 8 calls from her as we drove the 2 miles home. So far my son says she isn’t bothering him and the phone records support this. ) As a guest on Teen Help you are only able to use some of our site's features.This is my first realtionship, and i don't want to lose her, but this age thing is something I'm afraid of being looked at for. She might not even be aloud to date and specialy someone older.We are now hated - enduring deaths stares and silence.
My husband and I said no, explaining that we believe 13 is too young to be going on dates. When my kids were younger and the subject of them dating would come up I would say that I wasn’t going to allow dating until they were married. My only experiences thus far in the teenage world of dating has been as the mother of boys. Either that or her brothers will scare off any boy that dares to come near her. They are the ones pressuring the girls to go further. And my hope is that having six brothers takes the mystery out of boys and that she won’t want to date, knowing that they are gross, farting, burping, smelly creatures. Typically we think of boys as being the aggressors in dating situations.She would never admit it, but I think she knows we're not COMPLETELY unreasonable on this one!! Prior to that - I had "boyfriends" and we talked on the phone and went over to each other's houses for homework - doors were ALWAYS open and nothing was done in private. What you should do instead is invite a group of kids over to your house, fix them food, play music, have board games, Twister, etc. Be careful to look at any DVD's that a kid might bring to make sure you think it's appropriate- I had a problem with that, but my son is 18. I could go out on group dates at 14 and alone at 15.5.:) T.: Make a compromise - if they want to go to a movie - JOIN THEM!! If you do this, she will feel like she has something fun to do with him, and you hold the cards. Let her give you death stares all she wants - 13 is too young to date. I really don't care if this is a "different time." I'm doing the same for my daughters."Parents should take an active role in teaching and helping their kids understand what normal dating behaviours are." By understanding what "healthy" dating is at this age, parents can set limits and protect their child.
