My 15-year-old is dating a basketball player.

Dating. It’s not a good word for a lot of families, including mine. Everybody has their own set of values, and I understand that. But at a time where our culture has sexualized just about every facet of life, dating at such a young age can be dangerous. While many people my age did it and have great marriages, there are a lot of negatives. Have you thought about them? First, they have their whole lives to be married and in a relationship. Let them be kids. Second, spending alone time at that age can lead to more temptation sexually. And, last but not least, my 17-year-old daughter says, “Dating is for marriage.” Are our teens ready for that?
