Chuck, if your daughter doesn't have her own job and her own money, she shouldn't be dating. ;) Just my two cents. That's my rule. If you earn money--enough to cover a movie and dinner for you and your date--you can date. But you ain't using my money, daughter, to take yourself and a boy out.

I explained that people can easily be on their best behavior for a few dates, don't assume the person you are with on a date or two is the same person that he or she actually is.

 My older two have and are dating...they knew  my rules way before they were actually allowed to date. They knew what I expected as far as behavior and knew if our trust was broken, there would be no dating.

When they DID start dating, they had already been around many older cousins as they started dating...and as situations arose, we would talk about them and discuss our feelings expectations.
