Christian book on teenage dating
I’ll part with a picture of myself and my teenage boys. I love their goodness, their thoughtfulness, and though they’ve got much learning in the art of communication ahead of them, I know they will figure it out. Dating is an important aspect of life…you gotta do it!As much as I adore them, and secretly wish they don’t grow up and leave me, I want them to spread their wings, and eventually get married, and you can’t do that without dating!Ok, I’m going to go here…I think something that parents tend to be most worried about when it comes to serious dating with teens is not being responsible when it comes to the physical stuff!As I mentioned in my love story, I was taught, and chose abstinence before marriage, and we encourage the same thing with our children.It doesn’t have to be serious, or because you are a couple with someone, just GO!Yes, it’s scary and awkward and complicated at times, but it’s so important for growth and learning, and stepping into adulthood!I can’t wait to meet the girls they will bring home, and get to know them, and watch how they shape my boys into men with their relationships.
I always knew I couldn’t date til 16, and that was just fine with me!
As I told my class of 15 year old boys and girls last year–stay vertical!
