Nooooooooo! 10 is way too young to date. My foot would be not just down on the floor, but through it. I would tell my daughter that she could invite her friends over to the house and they could do something there, but going out on a date at 10 is way to young.
Put your foot down...any young lady at the age of 10 all the way up to 14 should not be allowed to go alone on a date with a boy. But if you go with them, that may be different, but there should be supervision for the younguns or else let the girl grow up a bit more and when you think she has matured and is responsible, than let her like around 15 and up!!
Why would a mother even consider asking this question?
10 years old???? I think I was still being a kid!
These poor children aren't children anymore! They want to grow up way too fast and have nothing to look forward to when they get older. What happened to pay attention to your school work? or concentrate on a specific hobby or sport?..... They have plenty of time as they get older to worry about dating! If they date at 10, you will be suprised at what they will be capable of by 12 years old! Some parents are so ignorant as to what age these children are having sex or oral sex! Some parents think "Oh not my child, he/she would not do that!" but in reality most parents would be in shock!
Personally i'd put my foot down. I hear way to many experiences from children at these ages and it makes me sick! By the time they are 16 they've had multiple people and can't count all of the partners they've had on one hand!

Foot goes way down. 10 is way, way to young to be thinking about boys. Focus on the important things, like family... and some crazy pop band singer that can't sing worth a dang but is cute. (Bieber) Not some snot nosed kid in their class that think tater-tots are the best thing that has ever happened in his life.
No way. She's way too young and immature. They want to go to movies rent one play in front room and enjoy bowl popcorn with them. She'll hate you but that's part of being a good parent. Later she'll love you and that's the reward for being a good parent.
I am having a tough time believing you would even ask the question. What would give you a slight doubt that it would not be acceptable? Ten? Really? That is a disaster waiting to happen? What are you going to do when she gets older? I think I am really concerned for this child. Enlighten me. What am I missing here?
All I have to say is I used to work in daycare 18 years ago, & we had a pregnant girl tour our facility who, upon the birth of that baby, we could've had both mom & baby in our care, as we can have kids in our center until they turn 13, & she had JUST turned 12, & was less than 2 weeks from her due date. PLEASE talk some sense into your fianc! He should be MUCH more protective of his little girl. If my husband has his way, our daughter might start dating when she's 25.
