Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month-February
Many teenagers have the impression that they shall be dating at this age. What give s it away? Is it the age; the puberty stage? Is it society? Who knows the purpose of dating? One dates to get married. One does not date out of pleasure. I recall my first boyfriend was at the age of 14; because I thought I was supposed to date. I would see everyone dating and I just wanted to fit in. Wrong…. Unless you have the income to sustain yourself, then go out and date. A teenager is unlikely to have that income. Besides, dating opens unwanted doors.
Teenagers dating is the same as exposing them to violence. How so? Well for starters, don’t allow two teens to go out in public alone; but instead with a group of friends. If they go alone, it exposes them to being sexually active. Something that is not supposed to happen to anyone unless married. Oh c’mon! You may think? Seriously; not meant to happen. Teenagers are meant to figure out what their life is all about; not the time for achild to raise another child nor the time to own anyone. He isn’t yours and she isn’t yours either. You are nobody’s property.
A family of four was eating dinner one afternoon when someone rang the doorbell. It was three thirteen year old girls asking their guy friend; if he wanted to go out for a ride in their “16 year old” sibling car. The 34 year old mother was in astonishment as she saw the “girls” without any adult supervision. Thirteen year olds are children; even 18 year old’s at times are also considered children. The 34 year old mother closed the door in astonishment wondering where the parents of the 3 girls were at. The world has come down to this. are the adults at? This was an open door to disaster.
Please do not leave teenagers without adult supervision.
