Ok Well, I think parents should interferre and there should be ground rules in each family that applies to boys and girls... they can date from 16 and older... I feel that that is a good time to start dating... however, there could be exceptions to this rule as the child has to be mature enough and have good grounded morals before going out on a date. Otherwise they should always be encouraged to go out in groups and have fun. This is for their own safety in more ways than one. There should also be a curfew time stipulated as they cannot come home all hours of the night or morning. Good Luck.

Well, my son is 15 months old and I think the perfect age to let him start dating is around 45 years old. LMAO. I can't even begin to imagine my baby boy dating. I don't think there is a perfect age because maturity has a lot to do with it and everyone matures at a different pace.

That is something you have to decide. You should base it on his responsibility level. If you feel he is responsible enough to follow your rules and will respect the girl he is out with then let him go.

I think parents shouldn't interfare in such things. Let him date and make friends with girls whenever he wants to.

boys usually wait till they have their drivers license to date seriously. They do have less serious dates during Junior High school, like school dances or roller skating or something like that.
