I think they start much younger now. They are so involved with outside activities with school and other functions, dating now a days is much different than when I was young. Glad mine are grown and I don't have to deal with it now.   ;D

Probably after they escaped from the Convent! ;D

Seriously, it would depend on what 'type' of date we are talking about, going to a walk-in movie with a boy and a group like thing, delivered and picked up by a RESPONSIBLE parent is one thing, probably 15/16. Other chaperoned 'meetings' would be OK too at that age. I think that girls and boys at those ages need (and probably want, if the truth were told) to be a little on the sheltered side as they learn and mature.

I don't have any kids, yet...Sixteen is a good age. That's when they're a wee bit more mature and independent. (They can drive and wear makeup.)

I agree between 17-19 is a good age. Earlier I think it gets in the way of there studies and causes problems.

It depends on what you are really calling a "date".  My girls went to school dances and parties at age 13 where there were boys and they would call them dates, but they weren't in our minds.  They both started dating around 16, but we had to know where they were going, had to meet the boy, and no school night dates ever, and weekend nights they had a curfew.  If they were even 5 minutes late, they were grounded for the next weekend date.

I don't have any kids yet but if I had a daughter I would not want her to date prior to 17 as I don't think people are emotionally mature enough before then.

I think a group thing is ok at 15 or 16, but one on one, it depends on the child and what you know about the boy.

My parents let me start dating at the age of 16 so I think that is a good age

It depends on the "date".   A group outing is fine for under 16, but otherwise I would wait until she was 16 and I also felt she was mature enough to handle different situations.  Each child is different.

Oh i am so glad i don't have a teenage daughter now. There is so much pressure on them  and i don't think they are as mature now as they use to be. Yeah i know they think they are, but when i was growing up we never even got to think about it until we were 16 and then it was only to school functions . and had a curfew in the whole county. And you had better stick too it or  you were grounded it seemed like for life. We were  not allowed to dress and act like they do either.

I have told both of my children (son and daughter) that they are allowed to date upon completion of post graduate school.  I don't think that they put any worth to that line of thinking. Truly I think that kids can date at whatever age as long as they can treat the partner with respect.  I don't think that sex is something that needs to happen until they are financially/mentally prepared to be a parent. I have noticed that a lot of children follow in their parent's footsteps. If both parents have gone to college the likelihood of the children going to college is enhanced. If parents have had children at a young age, generally speaking, so will the children. I just try to be the best role model available.
