My husband and I don't let our 13 year old daughter go on dates, she can't get anything but her ears pierced and she has to work for the things she wants. She says all of her friends can go out with boys and their parents just givethem money whenever they want to go somewhere. To me this isn't really teaching kids how to be responsible. I guess my questions are Do you let your 13 year old date? Do they have to earn things like money or cell phones or do you just give it to them? I just find it hard to believe her when she says we are the only "strict" parents out there.
