Mobile free no registration chat rooms - Christianity and teenage dating

If your teen is a Christian, they are to date and marry only those who have a heart after God’s heart.

Several issues arise when our teens begin dating and parents often ask for advice. Do they have a Christian mentor or other adult in their life with whom they will share their dating details?

The following are some questions I have heard most often. While many factors must be taken into consideration, and each situation is different, accountability must be part of your decision. If not, accountability must be put into place before dating begins.

Our kids will be the better for it in the long run!

Youth ministry meetings and events provide great opportunities for kids to work on their opposite sex relationships.

If you are providing at least some time when kids can hang out and talk, that’s really all you need to do. Still, typically, there will be some students who are shy or haven’t yet developed the social skills necessary to initiate a conversation with a person of the opposite sex.

So, from time to time, consider including some structured time for kids of both sexes to talk in small groups or one-on-one.

When kids exclusively date at an early age, they set themselves up for easily breaking the "Purity Code".

Youth workers and parents can help create a culture with teenagers that embraces the inclusive dating concept.

An inclusive date can be five girls and four guys who go to the mall together. Far too many students begin exclusive relationships too early.

It’s three guys and two girls who meet at someone’s home for pizza and a DVD. I believe that most people who began dating at an early age would say they regret it.

Love, dating and relating to the opposite sex are important factors in living out the "Purity Code".
