16yr old dating
Talk to him and ask him questions about school, what he likes to do, what does his family like to do together, etc.
I also make it a point to know the parents of the boy so that as parents you are all on the same page.
That doesn't mean they will be banned from talking to members of the other sex, or going out to do fun things with boys and girls - but it does mean that I will operate out of knowledge and giving them a safe and healthy adult life and not operating out of fear and trying to keep them happy in the moment as teenagers so often want to feel.
I also told her when she's 16 she can date ONLY IF we meet the boy. But I will tell you, love her, let her know you love her and then love her even more. Family Coach I say go with the two who say give permission for a group date.
Anyway, girls and boys, if they want to go out together, WILL find a way to do it, with or without their Parents permission. No matter what, you don't want her to start 'hiding' things from you.
SO, therefore, just keep open with her, have your 'rules' and curfews and what not, whether she is allowed in another boys car or not, and etc. Dads also have an important role in this 'phase' too... All the best, Susan Invite his family over for dinner.
So, I would tell my parents I was going to the movies with my 'girlfriends' and then they would drive me there and drop me off.
Then me, my girlfriends and the "guy" would then pair up, on our 'date.' It was all innocent...
