My Teen Son is Dating Now!
« on: Aug 19, 2014 @ 06:20 AM »
Almost 16 and has his first real girlfriend. Blogging gets me through parenting moments like these  ;D I am pretty proud of my post from yesterday and I even submitted it to The Huffington Post for consideration, which I have never tried before. Would love some feedback or insights from other parents with teens.  ;)

Oh, I loved that!

My teenage son started dating about a year ago, and it was the strangest thing the first time I heard him tell her that he loved her. My heart stopped for a minute.

I love the way you're approaching this, with joy and pride. We want our children to grow up, but we want them to stay small, too.  It's hard to find the balance sometimes.

Thank you so much. I truly appreciate the feedback. I was hoping not to embarass him in any way. Made sure not to use his or her names or any specifics about the two of them, keeping it more of a generalzation to cover all his future relationships. Thanks again!  :-*
