At school, I counted the minutes until that bell rang so I could see her between classes.
Her mom even gave me a nick name—Lionel Joseph (from Trading Places).
by Jennifer Shakeel It does not matter how you feel about your child and romance you are probably not going to be ready for them to have a boyfriend or girlfriend.
That time will be here before you know it and as the parent you have the privilege of setting the tone and guiding your young person through this exciting time in their young life.
There is a group of Christians that does not believe teens should be dating at all, and there are people on the other side that believe dating is how you know the right person when he or she comes along.
Most parents, though, fall between the two opposites.
We actually had two breakups—one that I initiated and one that she did (hers was final). I remember lots of crying on my part and wondering why this had to happen.
I had never experienced such intense feelings for another human being before and I had a hard time processing that.Even though your teenager is a Christian, it does not necessarily mean he or she can make dating decisions without guidance.Here is some advice as your child enters into this new experience: According to the Bible, it is God's will that people fall in love and get married (1 Corinthians 7:1-7).Where parents and teens tend to disagree is the method of getting to that wedding day.However parents do need to keep in mind that falling in love is part of God's plan.
