What is the normal age to start dating

Ray Guarendi As a family psychologist, I am often asked by parents when their children should begin dating. Let’s suppose that you’ve decided to begin dating discussions when your daughter turns 16.

But here are some general guidelines from my experience: 1. What is quite different these days is that you are almost as likely to be questioned by your peers, the parents of your children’s friends, They will say: “These are different times. Once you are confident your son or daughter has met these standards, sit them down, let them know how much you admire who they are and who they’re becoming.

This said, it is a simple truth of life that if you act differently from the way the majority does, you will be misunderstood by most.

Nothing at all is to be gained from premature, opposite-sex involvement through dating, or for that matter, through the phone, dances, parties, or games kids love.

Then tell them, “Just three more years, and you can date.” Just kidding -- sort of.

Circle of Moms member Lynn W., whose sixth grade son is among the youngest in his class, worries that some of his friends already have girlfriends.

"I think 11 -12 is still too young for that stuff...I'd say maybe 9th grade might be okay, but am not really sure." How young is too young to allow your child to date?Many moms say that the dating issue is likely to come up for the first time during the tween years, and that it can make a parent surprisingly anxious.But moms who've already been through this stage say it needn't be cause for stress; the key is to figure out whether your particular child is truly ready to begin dating. Nichole N., a mom of five, spaning from age 6 to 25, believes that it "depends on the maturity of the child." And Angie B.adds that "The age for dating is different [in] every family," and that much depends on a particular child's level of preparedeness.She suggests parents sit down with their pre-teens to discuss the issue calmly, before it even comes up.
