Middle school dating advice for parents
While these chats can be time-consuming, it's time for your tween (not you) to begin prioritizing his own obligations to schoolwork and other commitments.
When possible, let him learn from his own mistakes.
So we encourage parents to get involved in a variety of ways. Let your child see you reading every day, so that he or she understands the importance of learning to read well.
It's common for your once-cuddly preteen to turn red when she sees you approaching in the mom-mobile.
And you might be equally freaked out by her sassy new vocabulary and wardrobe, not to mention her resistance to rules.
Get out there and meet people and be able to have something to bring to the conversation. More importantly, if you are a needy person and you want to date a loner, you will have problems getting to a comfortable intimacy level. If a girl is known around campus as a cheater or if a guy's reputation is less than angelic, don't think that you will be the one to break the mold.
Try to find someone that you think you can relate to - socially and mentally. Nothing is worse than being the one who 'shoulda-seen-it-coming' when a person's old habits repeat themselves. Separate your relationship from your school responsibilities.
