I'm 13 and personally my parents wont let me date and there are people out there who love me for who I am and I think you should let your son date because he might date behind your back and Ifyou let him hr will tell you who he is dating and you defenetly don't want him to hate you over you not giving him freedom hope you consider I'm mature and I'm not allowed sooo that makes me feel like my parents don't care about my teen life
Your son may be mature, but he is still in school. The rule in my house is that no one is allowed to date until he/she is finished with his/her education. That way, the relationship does not get in the way of the schooling.
It's your choice for his well being. I'm in the same age group as him and I am also mature on subjects that revolve around dating too, but my parents restrict me from dating until 16. At first I was upset about that, but I realized that I'm not emotionally prepared.
All you need to make sure of is who he likes, background information, and what they are doing in the relationship.
Im 18 and i gotta say 7th and 8th grade were the starting points for learning how to date at least a bit. Its better to let him start then and it be easier and more comfortable to start relationships later. Especially as you say he is mature he should be fine. Hope this helps. :)
I'm going into the 8th grade and my parents won't let me date until i am 15 or 16 but i think 8th grade is a good time to start especially since you say he is mature and if he starts dating at this age then he will have a little bit of experience for more serious relationships:) i hope this helped!!!
