13 yr olds dating

Recently, the children of two close friends have begun dating. So I threw the question out there to the World Wide Web: "At what age did you or will you allow your children to start dating?

And it made me realize that we, as parents, have a pretty wide range of ideas on what age kids should be allowed to start dating and even on what dating means at various ages.

When I was around 14 I wanted to go on a date but knew he wouldn't let me.

" Predictably, two of the three dads who weighed in responded with "Never!

" FM, from Los Angeles, Calif., added "Italian father. My head just exploded at the thought." Here's what the rest of the Web had to say about kids and dating: Define dating Dating" or "Hanging out" Big difference these days ... but around 7th [grade], when the dances start, the dating starts.

I don't think I have a certain age in mind for dating to be OK - I think every child is different. Define "girlfriend" True story - when my son was 11, he had a friend who had a girlfriend - one that they would go to each others houses & hang out in his bedroom alone, door open or shut :/ he started asking me if he could have a girlfriend.

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from my daughter’s school, addressed to the parents of all Year 5 students.

The talk wasn’t on puberty – they'd had that talk the previous year. Over the past couple of months, boys and girls in the year have started asking each other ‘out’.

And it wasn’t on bullying, as they’ve covered that many times. This doesn’t mean actually going anywhere; at 10 and 11 years old, these kids are too young to go to the movies alone, let alone go out to dinner.The email was entitled ‘A Sensitive Matter’, and though the subject line was cryptic, I knew exactly what it referred to.My daughter had told me of a recent talk they’d had at school, and I had been waiting for the follow up email.Depends on the kid - and the date My parents said 16. It also depends on your relationship with your kid and how well you trust him/her, plus the boy/girlfriend and other friends.The dating sneak attack My Dad always said no dating until I was 16.Yes I have just turned 16, and yes lot of guys that age aren't in it for love, but I can say that I am. ohh I don't want sex, for any guy would like that, but I know the limits. We like to play around and stuff like that but at the same time we can still be serious and have normal conversations and what not without it getting "silly". i have just turned 16 and i am dating a 13 year old, and i was wondering if that is "OK".
