Dating is one area; in my daughter’s life, that I have been nervous about. My 16 year old is just beginning this stage of her life and I have been (and will always continue to be) open to communication. I am here to support her, listen to her, give advice (when asked for), and to guide her in the right direction.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, it may be time to think about whether your daughter is too old for candy grams. Is she considering dating? How do you know if she’s ready? When it comes to emotions, boys and first dates, she’s sure to have a lot of questions. Check out this article for tips on dating that will help her as she begins searching for her Valentine.
My daughter is still feeling unconfortable with the whole idea (thank goodness). I understand why she feels this way; don’t we all? She’s actually feeling unconfortable with the idea of possibly losing a friend. It’s true. When we cross the line from friendship over to a relationship, and if it doesn’t work out, we do run the risk of ending that friendship forever. It happens. Knowing that my daughter is mature enough to be cautious puts me at ease, and definitely more comfortable with the whole idea of her dating. I’ve always known that I can trust her; however, now I know that I don’t have to worry as much as I have been up to now. I know she’ll be ready to date soon, and I’m ok with it.
Over my daughter’s entire life, I have always maintained a close bond with her. She knows that she can always come to me for anything and everything.
