Parents strict about dating
I am very pleased to announce that Chris Jordan will now be fielding questions about raising tweens and teens.This really has come about because Chris’ inbox has been filling up with readers sending her personalized emails asking her advice and since we’re all in this together, why not share with you all, right?
One common stereotype is dating within one’s culture.
A stable job, a house, and three children later, they turned the American Dream into a reality.
Unfortunately, their reality is a lot different from ours.
Since you have a houseful of kids, I am wondering how you deal with this. “Mean Mom” Back when all of my children were small I always said that they could date once they were ready to get married. Based on my own life experiences I couldn’t see how it possibly could be a good thing. As they have grown I have realized that there is no protecting children from being hurt. Once they can drive they will be off going places and you probably won’t know where half the time.
And that there are valuable lessons to be learned in all of our relationships, romantic and otherwise. You may be surprised by what your 13, 14, or 15 yr old considers . 4) They are still willing to listen to what you have to say.
