Against teen dating
And unless a person is young age, nothing spiritually or emotionally good comes from dating in your teens.
I felt called to write about this because it seems kids today are dating at earlier and earlier ages.
And–try not to gasp–I not only let my kids watch Spongebob, but watch it with them.
At least once a week, I’m too tired to cook so I let my kids “forage” for dinner.
The teen dating scene can be awkward and uncomfortable, for teens as well as their parents.
Technology has changed the way teens date, and many parents aren't sure how to talk about dating these days.
If you have a child who is between the ages of 12 and 17, then you truly understand what I mean. It's not that all of those boys were monsters (although a couple were mighty strange) but that I did not have the time and the freedom, physically and emotionally, to develop purpose and confidence outside of a relationship.
For a young person of that age to be permitted to tinker with the affection and soul of another person so intimately is a very risky thing for both parties. I believe I had a boyfriend almost constantly starting when my age hit the double digits. I would gladly trade every single fun or memorable moment with my teenage boyfriends to have those years back as my own.
