Dating websites for teenagers age 13
Make sure to act interested but not too interested in your teen's dating life with the hope that they will open up to you if they run into difficulties. Friends are marginally ok but not romance of any sort. If they don't experiment, they won't know how a relationship works in the real world.
They may have more trouble expressing their feelings. I believe that kids should be able to start "dating" at ages 13 or 14, if they want to.

Naturally as kids view movies, shows, read books and all they will think that this is the "norm" and it is up to the parents to tell them that when in school, they have no business dating. Naturally, teenagers get more romantic feelings for people. Middle school and high school are the times where teens can experiment with relationships.Wherever people got the notion that kids should be dating while in school simply baffles me.If a kid cannot figure how to handle their "feelings" with their friends then they certainly will not gain anything with a boyfriend/girlfriend.
