Teenage guide to dating
You knew it would, but you didn’t think it would happen so quickly.
A good partner will accept you as you are, support your personal choices, and praise you for your achievements.
Discipline becomes increasingly difficult and may feel impossible to maintain.
It’s tough to know when to set rules and when to give freedom, when to bend and when to stand firm, when to intervene and when to let live.
Be sure to let your teen know you support him or her in the dating process.
Tell your teen you can drop off or pick up him or her, lend a compassionate and supportive ear when necessary, or help acquire birth control if that fits with your parenting and personal philosophies.
