    I was 16 as a JW when I started dating. I got a hard time about it from other witnesses, not my mom so much. I think parents need to be very involved in their kids especially when they are teens. I think I would be ok with my kids dating around 15 or 16. But I have about 11 years before that and I reserve the right to change my mind when that time comes.

    Pregnant at sixteen. I can't say that I've ever properly dated.

    For my daughter, it was group dates until sixteen.

    past the bloom of youth, of course.....preferably post-menopausal.

    Under controlled supervision 17 or 18, any younger the emotional maturity hasn't developed in younger teens to a extent where stability is present.

    Without a doubt. I like the group dating too. I will remember that.

    Like the corners of my mind
    Misty water-colored memories
    Of the way we were

    Scattered pictures, Of the smiles we left behind

    Smiles we gave to one another, For the way we were

    Can it be that it was all so simple then?
    Or has time re-written every line?
    If we had the chance to do it all again

    Tell me, would we?could we ???

    Couldn't help myself

    I was allowed around at sixteen Group date

    at eighteen I was allowed on my own

    I accompanied my older sister on dates as a spy

    for my mom. At eighteen she thought we were

    capable of conductin' ourselvers " Proper"

    My oldest son started at 15 but it was highly controlled. He's eighteen now but doesn't go on many dates. He and his friends mainly hang out in groups and plan for their next comicCon. My daughter just went to a dance at her high school along with a huge group of friends last night. I've asked her and she doesn't seem to have an interest in dating anyone right now. That's fine with me. Oh she's 15.
