Reasons of dating
Talk to your teen about how real life dates don't mimic what might be seen in the movies.
Instead, first dates may be awkward, but they can also be a lot of fun.
But make sure you offer your teen at least a little bit of privacy.
Our modern day dating culture is somewhat appalling. It’s meant to have a purpose and, in reality, it always does.
I know what you’re thinking: “It’s my life; let me live it how I like.” Go for it. But realize that you’re going to wish you had taken the time to better understand the implications of your actions and down what path they were leading you.
Don't listen in on every phone call and don't read every social media message.
Of course, those rules don't necessarily apply if you have valid safety concerns.
