Teen Dating

It’s easy for parents to get a bit nervous when their kids turn into teenagers – especially once they start dating! Here with some tricks for parents to find balance and peace of mind was Child and Adolescent Therapist, Dr. Tony DiBiasio.

Tips to remember:

  • Dating has changed! Social media (phones, texting, Facebook, Twitter) have changed the way relationships are formed.
  • Establish boundaries early with your children and then enforce them. This will make it seem more natural for your teens to communicate details with you.
  • “Going out” should require the 4 W’s: Who, Where, What (is the plan), When
  • Encourage your teens to date people their own age.
  • Identify at what age your children are allowed to begin dating.
  • Help your teen learn about their own inner voice – what is right and wrong.
  • Teach them to recognize signs of an abusive relationship.
