  • My younger daughter went on her first date--a double date when she was 17. Then my other daughter didn't date until she went to college. I always trusted them and knew the guys---and their parents,though. Age is not the issue---it is whether you know the guys ...if you can be sure they are good guys and if you trust your daughter, know that she has self-respect and moral standards and won't get into trouble. I trusted my daughters and they didn't let us down. :-)

  • 16 is the minimum age for our kids but then it'll depend on their level of maturity, too.
