  • Why not? They are teens, they are not adults and they are not only learning what they want in a mate but who they are. I don't see why that's even a question.

  • They are not emotionally ready to make a committment to one person. They are KIDS not adults.

  • I agree that they are too young to be getting into long term relationships and this is their way of seeing what type of qualities they want in a person. I hope my dd (freshman) will date a few different people when we allow it, although she has been talking to one specific boy for over a year. Waiting 'till she gets bored with it!

  • This is the way it is supposed to be. Kids are supposed to expand out so they see and learn about different personalities and what is out there. I personally wouldnt want my teenager to date only one person throughout high school. They are missing out when they don't get out there and see the options.

  • well be thankful there are not getting to seriuos they are VERY YOUNG! i would be concerned if she was having sex? perhaps it time to sit and talk with your daughter, find out what kids are thiking these day's? why they go through so many guys? what they think is cute ect... you have to think like a teen to understand a teen, it may be harmless then again it could be trouble, sit and talk with your daughter, find out how serious she is about thses guy's? infact get ready for the talk if you haven't already?

  • This is definitely preferable to a serious relationship at this age.Just make sure that you have had the banana and condom talk...
