Rules of dating for teenage girls
Most likely early one-on-one dating will lead to heartache.
We see their vocation choices as uniquely theirs- and encourage them to explore all vocations- the married life, the single life and the consecrated religious life. They are by no means perfect because of course we as parents are not perfect. To the best of my knowledge, nobody feels deprived with this rule. I think the girls feel very happy where they are socially.By interacting with members of the opposite sex in casual and natural circumstances, girls learn about themselves and about the boys.Young teen one-on- one dating is discouraged because two teens of the opposite sex being alone with one another for any period of time can be a huge temptation, even with the best of intentions.For that reason, later dating is just a better statistical odd for healthy emotional development.You stack the odds in favor of your child when you postpone their one-on-one dating until they are older, when they have more mature social and coping skills, have a stronger sense of self, have been exposed to more situations, and because of this presumably have better manners and skill.
