I told her that I believed that she isn’t ready to date, and that there’s too much pressure on kids her age to do things they’re not ready for.
After a week or two of listening to her tell me that she is the only kid in her whole school who can’t date, we finally reached an agreement.
In our case, when Brittany was young, we wanted to instill a modest dressing policy.
We have seen so many young girls dressing as if something was for sale.
Just ask them, “When is your daughter old enough to date?
” There’s always someone who answers “30,” and only half jokingly.
