Parents strict about dating
If you have a question, please email Chris at this specific email address: adviceforparentsoftweens[at]gmail[dot]com.Please keep your questions on the issue of raising older kids.Here’s some thing to think about for those of you trying to figure out what to do about your dating dilemma. Think of what you want to ask them before you bring it up, that way you can figure everything out in one conversation.#1 When I was younger, I was worried about dating because of my parents too. It’s better to have talked about it with them so you know what you can and cannot do, rather than going behind their back.
If he really does like you, then he’ll understand that you’re just following your parents wishes and will still want to be friends.
It may have been like this a long time ago specifically for our grandparents and great-grandparents during a time where things were more traditional, and the world wasn’t so modern.
As a 22 year-old Latina I can say first hand that things have changed tremendously, at least for my family.
We have alot of teens asking as what to do if your parents won’t let you date. For example, one girl told us she isn’t allowed to date until she’s 16 (which is another 2 years)!
She’s not sure if she gets asked out if she should say no, or how to do it if she does. Or if just hanging out with a guy friend and some other people counts as “dating”.
