Parents teenage dating


We caught up with two local experts on teen relationships and sexuality and asked for their tips on setting guidelines for kids entering the dating game. Lynn Ponton, University of California San Francisco professor of adolescent psychiatry and author of The Sex Lives of Teenagers and The Romance of Risk , and Nancy Brown, a developmental psychologist and education projects manager for Palo Alto Medical Foundation, both agree: Parents should set the stage for safe dating long before their child becomes a teen.

Don’t confuse group dating with double-dating or triple-dating. While there may be the occasional romantic twosome among the members, the majority are unattached. If anything, youngsters in the group spend as much time interacting with their same-sex friends as they do with members of the opposite sex.

This is a statistic that may strike fear in any parent’s heart, so brace yourself. The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that on average, girls begin dating as early as 12 and a half years old, and boys a year older. Yikes!
