I ask them what words they may hear at school that they don’t know what it means, and I tell them. I want them to know that kissing is great, and totally encouraged, but it’s important to practice self control beyond that.Though I’m VERY excited to talk about it, I have to also be very careful, to respect my children, and their privacy. I think she was flattered, maybe thought the boy was cute, but she knew she wasn’t up for that, and had an easy fall back of “I’m not allowed to.”In my head, I was kinda like….”well, you could have…” and thought it was sweet, but after thinking about it more, I was very impressed with her for being so mature.She had told me months later that her friends that “went out” with a boy (mind you, this is 4th grade) it got complicated and awkward, and she felt bad for them.I still feel like a teen, and having had the opportunity to teach teens last year and this year in a Bible study class, they have become my favorite people to hang out with. Our family rule is that dating starts at the age of 16. Couples can form as early as elementary school, and though it’s fairly innocent at that age, and definitely not considered “dating” in my mind, it’s one of the things that as parents we can be supportive of it, on the fence, or against it.I’m so excited to start sharing more thoughts on parenting teens, in a monthly series with a few friends, where they will join me in talking about teen topics, as we share our thoughts/experiences. It’s always been that, they have always known, so that decision was made well in advance. Not sure if it’s because of my chill boys, or because they’ve just always known the family rule. My daughter was “asked out” in 4th grade, and though I thought it was adorable and fairly harmless, she said, “I can’t date til I’m 16” to the boy, and that was that.I talk with them about all things sex, we discuss how babies are made at the dinner table with all of our children together, because I want them to know that is off limits to discuss with me.They will jokingly say, “mom’s going to talk about this stuff again…” with a teasing eye roll or something, and I’m ok with that.Ok, I’m going to go here…I think something that parents tend to be most worried about when it comes to serious dating with teens is not being responsible when it comes to the physical stuff!As I mentioned in my love story, I was taught, and chose abstinence before marriage, and we encourage the same thing with our children.Lucy, an IBM Programme Manager who met Pete through Parship two years ago, says: “I loved the compatibility test where I then stood a chance of meeting someone who I really was compatible with.Because of this, I believe there is true honesty on the site by those who take the time to complete their profiles in detail and the compatibility test.
