  • My son is not allowed to date until he is 16. And then there will be certain rules as to curfew,etc. I was not allowed to date until then and the same rule will apply to him. I will expect him to go to the door and pick the girl up, and I expect to have her meet me.

  • i say 13 supervised, by this i mean, with a group of kids not just one on one, a sibling (my parents allowed me to "date" at this age but i had to take my younger sister she was 11 at the time, this way they knew i had to watch her and couldn't do anything stupid i hated it but it worked) or a parent.
    15 by themselves

  • I say once they are old enough to not need mom or dad to take them. Anything younger then it has to be a group thing.

  • 16 for my son, and he agrees (right now that he is 10) lol! No but really MissKellee, do you really think you can oversee your chart for dating? if at 16 they are serious then who is there to see if they have sex before 17. I know we all have our realistic lists and our hopeful lists. I have just said no "fake" gf because that makes no sense. My neice on the other hand claims she had a "fake bf" and I saw her myspace messeges....what does fake mean? hmmmm....
