I want to post today about “should we allow dating in our student ministry? That is the parents’ call on those type of decisions.
So, the answer to this blog post is fairly simple, you cannot control it, but I want to take this discussion to a different level, how do we approach dating in our youth group?
Hence, they suggest that teens should be told about the consequences and dangers of risky behaviour while on dates.
They opine parents should handle teens and their relationships with much care, understanding and openness We’ve all experienced love during our teenage years. This love adds richness and happiness to our lives. It provides us with a chance to discover our own-selves as we share it with someone new.
Please do not be offended by that, but the odds are slim to none that a relationship in middle school and high school will continue. More often, I see relationships built in student ministry, and then a result is horrible and ugly break ups that affect the friendships, cause drama and, in a lot of cases, tend to be uncomfortable for other students surrounding these dating issues.
They should keep an eye on their children’s activities.
We also learn things — to love ourselves, things we’d like to change and about the qualities and values we look for in a partner.
Love and romance teach us self-respect as well as to respect others.
If their children are found to be in a secret relationship, they should have a talk with them and show them the right path.
Parents should motivate children to focus more on their future than on love relationships.
So, sacrificing a beautiful life just for a romantic relationship is a blunder.
