When teens date, they don’t act like themselves in many ways and work to please the person they are dating.
I’m not saying that your son will go down this path but I guarantee that he will be tempted because he is a normal, healthy teen boy.
I encourage you to keep open, frank and positive conversations going with your son.
Dating, for us, is something serious but at the same time we realize that’s it’s normal at 16 to be interested at some point.
We suggested that he keep her as a good friend and get to know her better and that time will tell.
For now, focusing on school, youth group and drivers license! With pressures on teens to be emotionally and sexually intimate, dating has taken on new meaning over the past 20 years.
My advice to teens is to nurture good friendships with the opposite sex because this is the best way to really get to know their character.
