Show less The dating world can seem really confusing. What does it mean to be a good boyfriend, anyway?

I hope you have enjoyed the series so far. Puberty, for the most part, is predictable and pretty easy to talk about. And this is where my series will shift from being straight forward to a little…sticky.
The bell rings! Another school week is over. You and your classmates are rushing out of the classroom.
Most Christian parents tend to fall into two different camps when it comes to teen dating. Some believe that dating is never appropriate and encourage their children to follow Josh Harris's "courtship" model. Others feel that dating can be a positive experience for teens provided they are mature enough and the parents know and trust the dating partner.
When it comes to dating, establishing safe rules early on can help prevent a host of issues. Discussing expectations with your tween or teen now, even before they express an interest in dating, can be a big part of your child's adolescent development. A parent's first line of defense against teenage sex is setting the rules for dating—and being firm about them.
There is a flip side to this of course. The woman who you are dating should know how to act like a lady. We have animals, and we go and plant and pull weeds and generally get messy and gross at times. Your sisters are not excluded from this work.
Post love quotes or your couple photos. Teenage is one of the best phases in any boy's life. One of the most cherished memories of this phase is the first crush, the first girl they dated or asked out to the prom.
