Tips on how to Handle Dating in Teens


  • You may not remember your first crush, but you can be assured that it was something you would have felt deeply. Keeping this in mind, don't belittle any tender feelings your teenager may nurture towards another person. It is something very personal to them and it is bound to be a sensitive issue. You're going to have to tread gently or there is a danger that you might alienate your child. Don't pry. Be sympathetic and most importantly, keep the lines of communication open.
  • Put your embarrassment aside and have a talk with your teenager about the birds and the bees. It is very important that they be aware that losing their virginity is a decision that should not be lightly made, especially if it is made as a result of bowing to peer pressure. Teenagers also need to realize that sex is not just a recreational activity, but can have serious consequences like a baby or a disease.
  • You also need to inform your teenager about the precautions they should take if they do have sex. You may not like to think about it, but all your well-intentioned lectures may fall on deaf ears. In which case, you want your teenager to atleast practice safe sex. 
  • If you sense that your teenager has developed a soft spot for another boy or girl, casually suggest inviting him or her over with some other friends so that you can get to know him or her better.
  • If you're lucky and your teenager is open with you about the way he or she feels about that special someone, then you can lay down a few dating rules. 


Dating rules

  • The first thing you need to do is to set a curfew and adhere to the rule strictly. If your child is going to be late, he or she must phone and inform you and he or she better have a valid reason.
  • They should inform you about where they're planning to go. 
  • Initially, suggest that they go out in a group rather than one-on-one. 
  • Money is another important issue that needs to be tackled. If your child feels that he or she is old enough to be dating, then he or she has to learn that he or she has to finance her own social life. You shouldn't be forking out money for these 'dates.' They should be budgeting for it in their allowance.
  • Tell your child, whether boy or girl, that he or she must offer to contribute towards the evening out.
  • If your son or daughter is going out on a first date, insist that his or her date come and meet you. It doesn't have to be a formal affair. Just say 'hullo' and exchange a few pleasantries. After all, it is not an inquisition. It's just a parent's way of reminding themselves and the teenagers that they still hold the reins.
  • Warn them of the dangers of drinking and driving. The standing instruction should be that whoever is driving should be in a fit state to drive. If he or she isn't, your child should either drive or find a safe ride home. 


Remember these are just guidelines and it may not be easy to get your teenager to toe the line. But there's no harm trying.

dating is important for any teenager, since it allows them to interact with people their own age. it helps know people and importance of having the right relationships. although dating may not be a compulsion it can be really helpful for any teenager to enhance his or her personality. all parents need to do is keep a tab on whom their kids meet and have the contacts of individuals their children move around with. it is better to strike a trustful realtion than something that is kept hidden.
