  • I think it depends on the child and what is customary in your area. Single dating, I think 16. Group dating could start earlier if you know and trust the other kids. When they start asking to date, tell them they are welcome to invite the person over or go on a family outing with you.

  • yes 16 or maybe 17 but make sure to know how old is the possible bf first a 20 yr old boy can fill the girls head with fantasy to have them doing what ever they want.

  • I think that depends on the kind of dating. Group dating seems appropriate for younger teens than one-on-one dates.

  • Depends. If the child is 15 and acts 7 make them wait.
