Should boys and girls be allowed to show there love for one another at school, such as hold hands or anything like that?

Boys and girls? I think they are not mature yet. They shoul d refrain themselves from doing these so that they can prevent unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted diseases. It usually start from holding hands and kissing until they want to explore more. They get so curious and they get so excited and when they reached beyond their limitations, there is noone to stop them. That's outcomes come and they don;t know or haven't thought of the consequences of their actions. I would suggest that they do this when they are 18 year old. Goodluck!

I high school its ok to show some affections. I think it dumb for them to be out in the halls making out though cause not only is it annoying for others to see but its doesn't show you have a lot of maturity. I'm not talking about a kiss goodbye but those that sit in the hall and put on a big show. Holding hands at that age is cute. Everyone knows your a couple.

why not? it's their life anyway. as long as the school administration puts enough limitations on how they show affections for each other i don't think there will be any problems. relationships are also a source of inspiration. it also teaches youths important lessons in life that are vital in growing up. as long as the grown-ups provide enough space, advice and guidance, things will go as smooth as possible.

For me it's ok if they are in Senior High School or University, that means they've been a teenager. But, I think only for hold hands each other. I don't like if they hug each other or they act like they are in their own world.. The worst is they Kissing! I think this can make other students feel annoy or jelous. besides, school is for studying, not for showing their love..

I think all these things depend on the social structure. Like in a conservative Indian society, and say in a small city, where people usualy do not like this type of behavious these things should be avoided. It is for ones own benefit as getting defamed is not affordable in a small city, especially for a girl, and she will have problems in her future, say with her marriage or with her hubby. When it comes to big cities like Delhi, a petty thing like holding hand can not be such a big issue and u can easily get away with it. But when u talk about an open society like here in Europe, even kissing, caressing and fondling does not matter to anyone. Overall one should always keep in mind that he/she should see the long term consequences of what they are doing. Besides I think its better that one should keep places like schools and colleges for studies only, irrespective of where u are, be it India, Europe, US or Australia. If they wanna enjoy they can enjoy at some other places like shopping centres, malls, parks, etc.
