(1 Corinthians ) To maintain close association with one particular member of the opposite sex while you are still in “the bloom of youth” can fan the flames of desire and cause you to learn the hard way the wisdom of Galatians 6:7: “Whatever a man is sowing, this he will also reap.” Granted, some of your peers might date without any intention of marriage.
They may view their opposite-sex friend as nothing more than a trophy or an accessory to be seen with in public to boost their own self-esteem.
We have told our daughter that we don’t want her to date.We will not allow her to have a boyfriend until she is 16.She thinks that we are mean and are trying to make her life miserable. Let them have their girlfriend or boyfriend over to the house while you are home. Get to know the other kid’s parents and what his/her home life is like. I have gone to the movies with my son’s girlfriend’s family, out to casual dinners, the amusement park.When your teen starts dating, it can be exciting and a little scary.You may be happy to see your child begin to form meaningful bonds.
