Free cybersex like chatroulette but with girls - Kids dating too young

Many parents are concerned when their 13 year old wants to have a boyfriend.

Going out can mean different things at different ages. Diana from Grainger, TX I have a 13 year old daughter too, and "yes", personally I think it is way too early. (08/26/2007) By Letha I must agree; 13 is too young.

The only reason I piped up on this is because I lost my virginity just after turning 14 because my mom never discussed things like that with me. I had my twins at 19, but my mom was strict until I was 17. I want my sons to know that they can talk to me about anything and when the "sex talk" does come up I will explain to them just how expensive children are. It seems like parenting is much harder when your children become preteens and teenagers. And I certainly never felt like I had to be rebellious and date someone just to tick off mom and dad, because I don't think it would have. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you should downplay the boyfriend issue.

I'm sure she didn't think she needed to at such an early age, but never the less it happened and it is something I wish I could change. I didn't even know she was meeting this older boy till she told me she was pregnant. (01/20/2008) By Tanya By No, I think that it is the perfect age for a girl to talk to boys. I wouldn't forbid it, because that would make it a "Big Deal" all of a sudden.

While some teens may be OK with not dating, others may feel frustrated or angry.

It’s a good idea to try to find realistic solutions.

(08/27/2007) By ELRJ Yes, 13 is too young to "go out", but times have changed. DD14 will be turning 15 soon and has a "boyfriend". Personally, I found your request a bit amusing simply because I'm the mother of a 13 year old boy who "doesn't have a girlfriend". Some of his little friends "have girlfriends", and I think at times he feels left out.

Personally our rule is no "dating" until you are 16. Yes, I think 13 is too young to be dating, but to simply be "talking" (as some of the young folks say) is okay (i.e. I think this is a normal part of socialization and as long as the situation remains innocent (talking only and with time limits, phone curfew, etc.), it'll be okay. We as parents can only hope we instill enough in our children for them to make good choices.

You may not be able to change your parents’ or caregivers’ minds.

Many families have expectations that young people won’t date or have relationships until they reach a certain age or are ready to get married.

Here are some common scenarios that can happen: • “My parents/caregivers don’t want me to date.” If your parents or caregivers won’t let you date, ask them why not. If your parents or caregivers refuse to discuss dating, talk to another adult, such as an older relative or sibling, who can help you understand their point of view and maybe help you talk to them.

A Kids Help Phone counsellor may be able to help you work out an approach to dating that your parents or caregivers can agree to at 1-800-668-6868.

For example, would your parents or caregivers be OK with you having more friends instead of dating?
