If your friends don’t like your boyfriend listen to what they have to say.
These parents are involved in their children’s lives, seeking to protect their innocence and purity for marriage.
Whom they should date As a starting point, we believe our teens should develop friendships with and eventually date only other Christians (2 Corinthians -16).
Why go out with someone who does not have your values?
Also, parents need to evaluate the vitality of the Christian walk of the person who may date one of their children.
And when a young man sends romantic signals to one of our daughters, we’ve talked with him and tried to keep the relationship on a friendship level.
When a child can date Giving a child the privilege of spending time with a member of the opposite sex is a freedom that is based upon our judgment of how responsible we deem this child to be. Is he strong enough to withstand peer pressure in a boy-girl situation?
In light of our reformatted definition of dating, we have the following very general age guidelines for spending time with a friend of the opposite sex (these are for our children still living at home).
However, even with these guidelines, three out of four of our teens had their first real date to the school prom in their junior year at age 17.
Listen to their feedback about whether they like him or not.
