I actually think at 12 or 13 you could have a date. Parents would
have to drive them of course and they would have to have a cell phone to
call if there is an emergency or if they are ready to be picked up. I think they
need their privacy and I would let them be by themselves but still be nearby.
I would allow my child to have a walking date at 13. They could go to the
park and have a picnic or go to a movie or to a fast food restaurant but
a adult will have to be near by. It would happen only on the weekend during the
day and the date would have to be over by 3 p.m. in the afternoon.
My child will not be allowed to date until they are 20 and would have
to be home by 9 p.m. A movie or a restaurant will be okay places to go and
no drugs will be allowed on the date.

I think 15 years old will be okay to date if an adult is with them and
only on weekends could they date. They can not go any place where there
will be smoking, drinking or drugs. And they can not go to far away from home
in case there was an emergency.

They will have to be at least 16 before they will allowed to date
and on the first date an adult will have to go along on the date.
After the first date I will decide if they can on the next one by themselves.
I think my child will have to be 18 to be responsible enough
to date and be home by 8 p.m. There will no dates during school
nights, only on weekends.

I think if they can pass their drivers test at 16 I think they
are responsible at that age to go out on date. Now they
would have to be home by 9 p.m., an adult would have to
go on the date with them and they could only go where they
are supervised by adults.
I would allow my child to go out on a date at the age of 16
but they would have to home by 8 p.m.
Sixteen and below is too young to date so my child would have to
at least 17 to date. They would have to be home by 10 p.m.
