Interestingly, the negative mail I got about this topic was primarily from the very group of women who prided themselves, at least in college, in being open minded. Our girls’ dad and I believe in fiercely protecting the treasures our daughters are while they are minors, and helping them make good choices, protect themselves and choose wisely as they mature and become adults. But for now, here we go- Mom’s Dating Rules for Girls 1. Yes, I am quite serious, and it’s working out great!
In short, girls learn about man/woman relationships first by seeing the husband/wife mother/father relationship modeled in their home by their parents, and then by experiencing their relationship with their siblings (if they have them).
Last, they learn from chaperoned and parent controlled exposure in various social, academic and athletic settings.
The girls can attend football games, bonfires, skating parties with boys, and a few astute, warm and friendly chaperone parents.
Girls and boys of teenaged age can do service work, meet in study groups, work together in clubs of mutual interest.
No matter their ages, their father will always look over them with a protective eye. The purpose of dating is ultimately to find a spouse.
