Apropriate dating age doubleddating com
I don't know if the age should depend on the child's gender, but more on their interest and maturity to start dating.
-Teri Harrison, mom of 4 A: Regarding what age it is OK to date, I think it depends on the particular child and I also think it depends on the plans for the date.

Each parent has to assess when their child is ready and make the decision based upon that.

I still think 15-16 is an acceptable age to start dating, and only if the child is really ready.My first date was a school choir concert at the age of 13.His dad drove him to pick me up, we went to the concert, his dad drove us home and that was it.The other thing that was really helpful was that in 7th grade and part of 8th grade, there was a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party–or several–almost every weekend.(We did not live in this area at the time.) That also allowed the kids to have a place to go to have fun, to be with their friends of both genders and to be supervised without them even being conscious that it was happening. Like many things, when children are not allowed to do something, I think it only makes them want to do it more. Children mature at different rates and have a differences in their sense of self.
