I have three girls still at home and have always been extremely cautious of where I allow my children to be with out me. It scares me to think of my children being put in a position to have to make choices they are not "ready" to make.
I have a friend with an 12 yr old daughter and was appalled to find out that my friend allows her daughter to "date" or "hang out" with boys. The daughter was making out with some boy the other day when I stopped by. Mom was completely ok with this and was just sitting in her bedrrom on opposite end of house from her daughters bedroom which is where two tweens were.
What is your take on this subject? I dont know what I would if I caught my 13 yr old daughter making out. I have always been open in talking about sex with my children (I have 7, 3 at home still), not had a problem yet. I am worried my youngest will at an early age give me trouble when it comes to boys.
I honestly dont believe ANYONE could convince me that 12 yrs is old enough to be "dating" but I am curious about what other people think.
