Arlington Moms Topic: When Should Teens be Allowed to Date?
This week's Moms Talk question looks at teen dating.
Moms Talk is a new feature on Arlington Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms and families.
Arlington Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in town.
Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, youth sports and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. Do you know of local moms raising their children in the Tiger Mother's way and is it the best way? Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How do we talk to our children about the Tucson shootings? How can we help our children's schools weather their budget cutbacks?
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a question:
At what age do you believe teens should be allowed to date? What are some of the early restrictions you place on your teens when they are starting to date (curfews, etc.)?
Let us know what you think about this question in the comments below!
