I personally don't think there should be a set age on when a teen can date. As a parent, you know how mature and mentally ready they are to date. I had my first boyfriend at 15. Plus if your kid met someone and grew real feelings for them and you forbid them from dating I'm sure they would grow to resent you. I don't think teens are ''too young to date'' but some are too immature and too naive to understand what relationships are all about. My grandparents met when they were 14 and 16 years old and they are still together almost 60 years later. That's true love.
If your teen comes to YOU and tells you that they want to date, you shouldn't deprive them. They will do it somehow. Especially if it's someone that they see everyday at school.
