Its best for a young person to get an education first and foremost before falling in love & getting married....The only problem is when we have a child we have hopes and plans for them, and we try very hard to keep them on the right path, however our children sometimes do things on their own and we cannot control everything they do, as hard as we try...Children are all different, some will listen & some will not....I have raised five children and believe me they do have a mind of their own & sometimes they do things that we do not like....If you are lucky your child will obey you and listen but sometimes they get a mind of their own & then you have a problem..I do hope that you can keep your child in line and do as you wish..but always remember that some children will become teenagers and do things you do not approve of, i have experienced what it is like to raise children...

I think its just a matter of trust. If my kid would be in a relationship at a young age...I won't be strict on him/her about it, because the more that you try to control it, the more they will be curious about it. Thing is, I want my child to be honest with me, to be open so that I would be able to guide him/her. I don't want my future kid to hide things from me.

I was surprised when I was on holidays in Australia, just how young boys and girls were in what appeared to be romantic situations. Children, as young as ten holding hands and kissing. They are missing their childhood.

Me, If I am the parent I don't agree on young love. I want children to be children not to be with serious relationship. Regrets is always in the end when you don't take care of your child. I want my child to explore things around, to study first. Of course they will surely have crushes but I am there to guide them of what is the real meaning differ to love. I am against young love. I hope parents out there help and guide their children. This is for their own good.

cherrie what do you consider to be young love? Some people think that 12-14 is young to date while others think it is OK. Some think that 16 is OK while others think a girl should not date until they are out of high school or college. Lets face it at any age the girl can be ruined if they get pregnant out of wedlock in some countries. In the USA it is not so bad for girls and women to have children out of wedlock. It is still frowned upon but the girls life is not ruined, she is not ruined or kicked out of the community.

It all depends on how young is considered young. Personally, I feel it is fine if the child is mature enough to know what he/she is doing. I do not think that the child could be ruin if we educate the child about relationships and the responsibility it comes with.

I'm not sure what you consider a young age. With my daughter I will be honest and open with her about all aspects of relationships. I hope that she will be able to come to me and talk honestly. Children seem to mature quicker these days. And if they are going to have relationships they will do so with, or without our blessing. The only way of preventing this is by being with them every minute of the day, which is totally impossible. I hope to give my daughter the tools to make responsible decisions and talk to me about those that she makes. I think treating her with respect and allowing her to make decisions for herself even those that I might not agree with will allow us to have a better relationship.
