The internet has also been constructed in a way where people can date online.
If you remove limits for your children, they will understand that they can get away with anything.
What are some of the things that parents can do when their children express a desire to date?
You can talk about dating guidelines with them, not allow non-solo dating before the age of 16, or help them cope with their feelings while telling them no.
You can help them cope with their feelings by encouraging them to draw, paint, write poetry, write songs, or anything else creative to let out their emotions.
Try to make it so that you are not the “bad parent” but a supporter of their well-being.
