17 dating a 15 year old george clooney and julianna margulies dating
I wonder if there are statistics on what age is more prevalent in teen pregnancies- I'm thinking it will be 16. My parents were crazy strict and I just did it anyways and covered it up well. Communication is the key, and if you haven't got a good start before they're teens then you are in for a fight.
My parents were 100% open with me, didn't sugar coat anything they told me, and asked me if I was ready for the truth when I asked them a tough question, because that is what I received when they would answer.
Parents choice of course, get involved early, or dont get involved early.
I personally think it's the difference of night and day in responsible young adults. You wait too long, and you are truly in for a fight.
When kids get old enough 15/16, they NEED this interaction and teaching of whats right and wrong daily and why, and what consequences are for certain actions and why..
I can't think of one who was told they Couldn't date, they just assumed it. If they're being forced to cover it up and aren't able to discuss things openly with their parents it sets them up for disaster. Too many just lay down the law and expect it to fit their kid because it fits them as a parent.
True, I was thinking there was an age difference of like 3 years before it was statutory rape, however after reading, that only means if you're both under 18.
When the man turns 18 it is by textbook law, statutory rape for him to have sex with his girlfriend who is still 17..only one year difference. And I'm just glad the craziness is over and the topics are all getting back to normal again.
Either that or force them to hide it from you and let them go into it alone with no information or ANYTHING because they're afreaid to ask you..9, 10, 11, 12, I agree no dating what so ever, however 15 you should use this as an opportunity to be more involved with your children, rather than condemn it and regret it later.
don't be too stern or u will have them hiding it from you, and then they can't come to the "parents" for advice, and the advice they are able to get may not be what they need!!!My son's friends are so disassociated with their families that I couldn't imagine being one of them and trying to connect with them NOW when they're this age.
