well, as long as they are not serious. I personally think it's dumb. and i'm only 13. yes i have had a girlfriend before, but she was more of a crush. it wasn't like, "OHMYGOSHNESS I LOVE HER! ....we shall be wed!"
I'm 14 and I had my first little boyfriend when I was nine or ten years old. I don't really see a problem with it if it's just an in-school boyfriend. But if you're talking about going out on dates like to the movies or mall or whatever, then yes, that's a bit too young. You're twelve anyways, enjoy the single life, and don't grow up or move too fast. Chances are that you'll regret it.
depends... whos asking... a 12 yr old or a parent?................ I think its important for kids that age to have both male and female friends... but u can just say "yes they should date!" because some kids arent ready..... and boys in particular now days dont even hit puberty till 13 or 14. They honestly dont understand romantic attraction.... so so i dont think they should declare their love that young....but hanging out with boys and girls is important in developign their social skills.... I think a kid should start dating when a) they feel like they need than extra connection. b) the RIGHT person is available and willing to fill the roll (hate people who date just so they can say they date) and c) when they are mature enough to know what it means, and what is expected of them, without unnecessary pressures.
Uhmm. If he or she wants too. Then yes. Maturity has NOTHING to do with age. And it would actually be for the best. I mean, if she happenes to get hurt, it will teach her. Therefor for the better. If she doesnt get hurt. Then loook at that. Telling him or her NOT to date, is also giving her the thought of doing it behind youre back, and not being able to talk to you about things.
i think they should have play dates but not real dates! where they chill at they house and watch tv and eat takeout while the parents are doing there own think at the house and not being annying or nosey
Yes they should if they want i mean who knows i wasent alowed to date at that age and i got made fun of in school saying like no one likes me and that im gay and everything else and i got so mad at my mom but u should cause you dont know what happens outside the house because my mom dident let me have a boyfriend she made me more tempted to do stuff because i dident like anyone telling me what to do i dident listen or anything and i thik she/he should be able to go out!!!...
yes! dating for those ages isn't having "it" or making out, it is just the boyfriend maybe paying for a movie or them holding hands. at that age, they are too shy to do anything wrong. it is completely fine
Depends on what you mean by dating. If they have a little friend at school then thats fine but no 12 year old of mine is leaving the house to go on a date. Id say 17 is a fair age for that. Parents arent strict enough thats why so many 16 year olds are sitting at home with a one year old.
