Would you allow your child to go out on a date as early as 16? What do you think you’d feel about it if one day your child would ask you “Ma, can I got out on Friday night with…..? Be honest ladies!
I always tell everyone that I would let Jared date when he is 30 and let him get married when 60! But of course in reality, I can never really do that, lest my son will accuse me of being such a domineering mother or worse, he might hate me or disobey me. I would never really know for sure if I will be emotionally fit to allow him to go out on a date at 16, but I guess, we just need to see! Motherhood brings so much more into my life including the courage to let my baby spread his wings to take his own flight. I will never be the one to smolder his spirit or cramp his style! But maybe, for the sake of argument + to compromise, I’ll let him date by then, only and only if, he is doing okay in school + is being such a darling of a baby! There…talking about this is actually making my heart heavy…I don’t think it would be easy to do it when the time comes, I’m just too wrapped around my son’s fingers…Anyway, that is still a million years from now, right,he just celebrated his 18th month? I’ll just push the thought as far back in my mind as possible..Right now, let me just revel at the thought that I am the only woman (okay save for my sisters perhaps!) in his life + that he can’t bear to be separated from me…that ought to cheer me up!
what are your thoughts on your son dating at 16?
