According to the rule, for example, a 30-year-old should be with a partner who is at least 22, while a 50-year-old’s dating partner must be at least 32 to not attract (presumed) social sanction. Does it match our scientific understanding of age-related preferences for dating? Researchers Buunk and colleagues (2000) asked men and women to identify the ages they would consider when evaluating someone for relationships of different levels of involvement.
When this question comes up in conversation, someone inevitably cites the “half your age plus seven” rule. I know that when a child asks her/his parents for permission to "date" it is not only about going out with the girl/boy, they are also asking, "do you trust me? I will not give you advice as I do not know your family, your values, nor do I understand your relationship with your daughter. I know that the more parents try to keep their children young, the more their friends may pressure them to grow up. I know that you are in a position to open the communication for ALL her dating experiences. (Deuteronomy 6:6, 7) Could it be that your parents have some legitimate concerns about your well-being? After all, God holds your parents responsible to teach, train, protect, and guide you. Or perhaps you feel that getting into the dating scene would help you to fit in better with your peers. “If you’re not dating, kids in school think you’re weird.” One family counselor observed about dating: “There is no area in which parents seem more unreasonable.” But just because your parents may seem to be unreasonable, does that mean that they really are?
Maybe you’ve met someone that you really like and you want to get to know him or her better.
I don’t even know how to discuss this with them.” Like this young man, you may feel that your parents are being unreasonable and unsympathetic.
“I want to do as the Bible says and honor my father and mother,” says one youth, “but I don’t think they’re right.
So I will not give you any advice, but if you don't mind, I will tell you what my 10 years as a middle school teacher and school counsellor taught me: I know that if a boy and girl want to spend time together, they will, parents permission or not, whether they go to the same school together or not, whether they live in the same city or not. I know that your child wants you to know what is going on with her.
Offer to drive them to the movie (somebody has to if they are only 14, right? (Not near them.) When my son was younger most of his friends found this OK, as long as I didn't talk to them or act like I knew them. And then today I read your request, I guess it is what moms go through. I know that you are very blessed to have an open relationship with your child.
BUT I wish that my mom would have said NO, you can't see him anymore. NO you can't go out to the movies alone with boys at 15 yrs old.
