Would you let your 13 year old daughter date?

If yes what kind of date would you allow her to go on and when would she have to be home?

  • Have a boyfriend in a controlled setting such as school, yes. Go out on dates, no way in Hades!

  • No. Kids are having sex earlier and earlier these days. Oral sex is big among middle schoolers. I would not let my daughter out of my sight - even in a school dance situation - I will chapperone as much as possible. It's my job to protect my daughters from making mistakes - you can only teach them so much before their hormones take over - and hormones are MUCH louder than your voice inside her head. Even if you trust her, you still need to keep a CLOSE eye on her and protect her from her own bad decisions.

  • No, not really. Although, when I was 12, I had a "boyfriend". We would go to his house after school, and just hang out. I FREAKED OUT when he tried to kiss me. It lasted about 4 months, and the furthest he got was a good bye hug!

  • In my humble opinion, 13 is far too young to date.

  • No. If she had a "boyfriend" at school that's fine I guess but there would be no "dating" unless maybe a whole group of friends went to a movie (I'd be dropping off and picking up) but the boy would not be at our house and she would not be at his. There would also be a looong talk about what is acceptable "girlfriend" behavior and what she has the rest of her life to wait for.
