Here are some rules and guidelines to consider when creating rules for your teen: Make sure you get to know anyone your teen is going on a date with.
If a boy pulls up and honks the horn from the driveway instead of coming in to meet you, make it clear that your daughter isn’t going on a date with him.
But older teens are likely to want to go out on dates on the town without a chauffeur.
Make it clear you need to know the details of who your teen will be with, where they are going, and who will be there. It’s important to know what your teen is up to when going out on dates. In some states, teens can date anyone they want once they reach 16, but in other states they don’t have that choice until they turn 18.
So, it’s important to inquire in a polite but straightforward manner what type of rules and supervision will be offered.
