According to Planned Parenthood, about 10 percent of teenage girls in the U. Let them talk privately with their doctor so they can get what they need to take care of themselves.Encourage them to come to you with any question or conflict.But it’s important to remember that they do still need you now and this is a normal development phase of the teen years.There are also things you can do to make dating easier for both of you.Dating is a time of social experimentation for teens.It’s a time to test out which type of partners appeal to them, and how they can negotiate a romantic relationship.Most parents have some fears of the day their child will start dating.
Teens also learn how to be both assertive and compromising, how to be giving to another and how to expect the same in return. Show them how you compromise, stick up for yourself, give and expect respect and argue but love your spouse. Tell girls that they do not need to have sex to keep a guy. Many kids are having these forms of sex because they tell themselves it’s not really sex. Then tell them about contraception and sexually transmitted diseases.All of this is a sort of practice session in order to find “Mr.” or “Miss Right.” Unfortunately, too often teens start dating with no preparatory talks from their parents and then they can get into trouble. You hope they will wait to have sex, but if they don’t, it’s best that they protect themselves.
