When would you allow your child to date?

At what age would you allow or when is it appropriate for kids to start dating? From what I see on tv, kids nowadays date as early as 10 years old! This is quite shocking for me since they are just kids. They don't know anything about love and wooing. My kid is a baby boy and I know I wouldn't want him to just start dating so early. I want him to be mature enough first. Please advise.

you should tell your baby boy that there is right age to go out on dates. what he should think of now is his studies and just have fun to make friends with other girls.

Uhhmmm.. Though its early for me to think about that, I would have to say yes. Because normal people does that. I want him to live in a normal teenage life. I want him to learn and live life to the fullest. Of course, education will be a priority. A statement should be like, I don't worry much because he is a Boy but I am very much worried because he is My son.
