Teenage dating age
There will be equal number of parents for and against teenage dating. You see that girl, and all you want to do is pull her in an embrace and seal her lips with a kiss!
And you are dying to get some time alone with your sweetheart. However, it is something children don't want to talk about with their parents; and something parents don't know HOW to talk with their children. One cannot estimate the intensity and obligation of peer pressure unless one is subjected to it.
Of course, dating tends to be an exciting but challenging part of any teen’s life.
However, some difficulties tend to be particularly relevant for teens with autism. Just keep them in mind while helping your teen navigate the dating process.
Regardless, the physical changes that accompany adolescence make these issues relevant for most families.
When social cues are missed, your teen’s “dates” may feel that their messages or feelings aren’t being heard or validated Considering what to consider Dating also involves finding a good “match.” However, many teens with autism fail to stop and consider who might be their “good match” before jumping into a relationship. Of course, you and your teen may disagree about who makes a good match!
Some important questions come up around dating, and each family approaches them differently. If your teen hasn’t already brought up the topic, look for a time when he or she is in a good mood and mention your willingness to talk about dating and sexuality when your teen is ready. Discuss possible reasons that someone might not be interested in dating.
Social versus physical maturity First, remember that your teen’s social maturity may not be in line with his or her physical maturity.
In other words, many teens with autism feel the physical desire for sexuality before they have the social competence for successful dating.
