The teen dating scene can be awkward and uncomfortable, for teens as well as their parents.
There is no way around it; your teenager is going to want to date.When he/she does, you’ll have to step up to the plate with some parenting skills.A teen does not learn how to date in the classroom and most likely has only picked up on some of the basics, like respecting someone’s personal space, at home.But without experience in a romantic relationship, teens don't know what to expect.But make sure you offer your teen at least a little bit of privacy.
Don't listen in on every phone call and don't read every social media message.
Of course, those rules don't necessarily apply if you have major safety concerns, however.
While it's not healthy to get wrapped up in your teen's dating life, there will be times when you may have to intervene.
Talk to your teen about how real life dates don't mimic what might be seen in the movies.
Instead, first dates may be awkward, but they can also be a lot of fun.
Today's teens spend a lot of time texting and talking to potential love interests on social media.
