High school dating advice girls

If her father is loving and protective, and pays appropriate attention to her by cheering her on in her accomplishments, whether those accomplishments are in soccer or dance or something else…compliments her on her femininity, telling her she looks pretty in a dress when she does or that he notices and likes her new haircut, he is encouraging her to take care of herself and value herself.

But I’m not posting this to argue or try to prove that I am right and that there’s only one way to do this. If you don’t like these rules, or if you vehemently disagree with them, or if you think they are stupid, or if you would just choose something different so be it, that’s FINE!

This is what WE are currently choosing to do in OUR home with OUR reasoning behind it. Feel free to mosey on to the next blog on your list without further Mean comments, remarks that we are ‘sooo behind the times’ are boring and will likely be deleted.

The girls can attend football games, bonfires, skating parties with boys, and a few astute, warm and friendly chaperone parents.

Girls and boys of teenaged age can do service work, meet in study groups, work together in clubs of mutual interest.

I’ve been asked about this topic many times, when I talk to mom’s groups, in casual conversations, and in emails. I am sharing here what is now morphing into our own family’s dating rules for girls, either formally or informally.

That’s the motivation of this post- to answer the people who have asked me the question of what we do.

If you have something sincere to say, by all means say it, or email me, but I will not tolerate ridicule, which is what I got from a number of my college alma mater “connections” last time I posted for young men “Mom’s Rules for Getting the Girl”. We have six daughters, currently three teenagers, one in her early twenties and the others are 11 and 8.

The comments mostly came from a Linked In group that went ballistic, but there were some on this blog too and I deleted the rudest ones. They are intelligent, talented and beautiful girls, as I’m sure yours are as well.

No matter their ages, their father will always look over them with a protective eye. The purpose of dating is ultimately to find a spouse.

Therefore, one-on-one casual dating before age 18 is pointless.

It lays the groundwork for healthy sense of self as well as healthy relationships with others, including males, for a girl’s entire lifetime.
