It’s a hot topic and there’s nothing simple about it.
Teenage dating tends to stir up some nostalgia, concern, and sometimes, even controversy when we enter into discussions about the when, who, why, and what of dating.I spent my money on long-distance phone calls that went unreturned and allowed myself to be a second choice to everything else in his life. Instead of spending my thought life on this guy, I wish 17-year-old Melanie would have invested all that time and energy in herself.I gave my heart away far too easily and allowed myself to be hurt (over and over again). I wish she’d made college decisions based on what God was telling her instead of what someone else was. ’ I have learned so much and there are lessons I want to spare my daughter, and my son when he’s ready, from having to learn firsthand.On the other hand, as a mother you could be afraid for your daughter, fearing she will go through a similar heartbreak like you went through in your teen years.
As for being parents of a son, you do not want your son to be labeled 'heartbreaker' or 'flirt'.The biggest argument against teenage dating is the fact that it is teenagers we are talking about.
