Teenage dating age range
It could be a little uncomfortable or embarrassing, but if your child is unable to even discuss it with you without getting defensive or upset, take that as a sign that they probably aren’t ready.Be aware that for many tweens and young teenagers, dating amounts to socializing in a group.
The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that on average, girls begin dating as early as 12 and a half years old, and boys a year older. You may be surprised to hear dating labels like “boyfriend,” “girlfriend,” and “together” from the lips of your sixth-grader.You can also consider what other parents are doing.Are lots of kids the same as yours already dating in the true sense of the word?ok I know a lot of people have different opinions on this topic, how many years older/younger than you would you date?how many years older/younger would you expect a teenager to date? I personally don't think age matters as long as the minor has parental... So to me I don't see much difference in a 30 year age gap as mature adults and a 5-10 year age gap as mature teens/young adults.
