I am a girl, so all my friends would talk about their crushes while I wasn't even allowed to think of having one.
So I think that they should be allowed, and that people should not judge them by THAT either.
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.
With some quick math, the rule provides a minimum and maximum partner age based on your actual age that, if you choose to follow it, you can use to guide your dating decisions.Some of these celebrities they had a loving partner who helped when the little ones were small. We don't know how they did it, but let's just say it must have taken some serious grit and determination!What is the acceptable minimum age for your own (and others’) dating partners?But for my daughter, the boy had to be willing to go on a "double date" with my husband and I first.If the boy won't spend time with us, then he can't be alone with our daughter. Homeschool homies As homeschoolers, my kids are in a different social structure, so I suppose we'd just take it one day/one person at a time.My son at 11 already has a very close girl friend (not girlfriend) but if that evolved, we'd just see how it went and make sure to be open with him and encourage him to do the same.
