Dating etiquette for teen
Pros: Going on a date with another couple helps hold your teen responsible and resist temptation.
Christian teens face a lot of the same temptations as other young people, so having friends there can be helpful.
Pros: Letting your teen know that you expect purity is important to tell your teen.
Your direct statement will be in the back of their head, even if they seem to scoff at your statement.
The Solution: Encourage your teen to call you if the other couple leaves or does anything that compromises your teen's situation.
Also, try to meet the other couples so that you can feel more comfortable about your teen associating with him or her.
The Solution: There are several solutions to this issue.
Parents need to know why they are setting the rules, and they also need to discuss the rules openly with their children.
Here are some of the most common dating rules and how they can be used most effectively to guide teens through the world of dating: Pros: You can set an age where most teens have a good maturity level and are able to think independently.
Cons: Demanding that your child waits until marriage to have sex without explaining why may backfire.
Using a punishment approach (the infamous, "If you have sex, you will go to Hell" approach) may only make your teen more curious.
