A Confused Mother Dear Mother, First, let me say that we have to be very careful about wishing for popularity for our kids.

"Chilren" aged roughly 14-18 aare programmed that way.

It is important here to make the distinction that the teenage years are not a physiological phenomenon, but a cultural one. Don't get me wrong, I have a young daughter and do not intend to let her date in middle school, but this is where "their business" in doing so lies. School is actually the abnormal thing in this situation.

I am not sure how you and your daughter are defining dating.

If it simply refers to exchanging thumbs-up signs or a few text messages that is one thing. For more articles like this please see my website: I came to this website to get advice if I should continue dating or not.

Perhaps the early daters neglect friendships and lack a necessary support group of friends to see them through all of the years of middle school and high school.

We all have had and continue to have friends who drop us when they are in a dating relationship.

I have seen some very disappointing things on articles of my situation.

Such as middle school relation ships do not matter.

If we were still hunter-gatherers, these young people would, again, not be regarded as kids.
