nope he is old enough to learn his own leasons an like wise.
hmmm... no idea...
Yes on both sides. That is a responsibly children don't need. Yes it happens and for those kids it changes their lives but I wouldn't encourage my children to take on those roles at their age.
It wouldn't likely be fair to the other peron either bc they have plenty to deal with and don't need any heartbreak or stress from my children,
of course I'd discourage it
I'd also discourage my teen from dating kids who were into drugs, drinking, vandalism, bullying, had bad grades, uses too much profanity, was disrespectful, rude, etc.
I have a teen girl, and she has a few guy friends that are dad's (they are older than her and they are just friends) and if she was the same age I wouldn't necessarily discourage it if the general character of the boy was a good one.
The more you discourage boys or girls on relationships or anything else they want to do, they more you will push them into doing it. In my opinion leave them alone and hopefully they will realize it's wrong before it's too late. If not, we all have to learn, and sometimes the hard way. I'm not talking about little kids or young teenagers.. I'm talking about older teenagers.
Depends. We do not approve of relationships unless it's getting to know the person for marriage. And 16 is too young for marriage IMO.
