Several issues arise when our teens begin dating and parents often ask for advice. Do they have a Christian mentor or other adult in their life with whom they will share their dating details?
The following are some questions I have heard most often. While many factors must be taken into consideration, and each situation is different, accountability must be part of your decision. If not, accountability must be put into place before dating begins.
II Corinthians says, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.
For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? ” God is reminding us of a very important command that will save our teens much heartache in the long run.
When teens are living by Godly morals and standards that have been taught in the home, they make better choices for their dating lives.
God gives some great guidelines in His Word about dating and, as parents, we must reinforce these guidelines in order to offer our teens wisdom on dating.
When your teen is ready to have someone remind them of Godly standards for their relationship, they may be ready to date.
