Teenage dating advice for boys


12-Jun-2014 15:22

I echo my husband’s sentiment and think the most important thing for a girl to do on a date is to remember she has great dignity and worth.

Before a girl even says yes to a date, she must know that she is a beautiful, perfect creation of God.

Hopefully, your child’s romance is successful and fun.

But many tween or teen relationships are not, and end within a month or so of the first kiss.

If you really like the boyfriend or girlfriend, let the kids know it — take them out to dinner or to the movies with you, praise the way that they treat each other and are respectful of feelings, and also show that you know when to back off and give the couple some privacy and time to themselves. If you have reason to believe that the relationship has gone too far (the kids are experimenting sexually, for instance), you must step in.

First, talk with your child alone, and discuss the reasons for refraining from sexual activity (emotionally she may not be ready, it often ruins the relationship or reputation, the possibility of sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy).

We may try to act or look a certain way so that our date likes us.

It’s not a bad thing to want to impress others, but our ultimate goal in dating shouldn’t be to please the guy who asked us out. God created women intentionally, unique within all of creation.

Keep in mind the big picture and how important it is for your child to move out of this relationship and into a different frame of mind.And his birthday is just around the corner and she’s babbling on about whether to buy him a shirt or a CD.
