The age should be 18 for dating. All other social activities should be supervised by a parent before that age. Why? Before age 18, sex (even consensual) is regarded as statutory rape. By law many states will label the child as a sex offender.

I think it dependes on the maturity of the person. My son had taken is school mate out to the mall at age 14, but her mom was with them. But through my experience of that, I think that with maturity of the person they should be 18 years of age.

I think it depends on your child. Dating is different than "going steady". Going on dates, I would say about 15-16. Many parents think they know their child when they really don't. Hint: a lot of a kids personality is inherited, look at yourself.

"Group dates" are appropriate at 16 & 17, yes 18 is the appropriate age for some 'alone time', however I will encourage my daughter to get through college before entering into a 'serious' relationship.

It really bothers me that a parent says that their child should not be able to date until they are 18 because they can better handle 'pregnancy'. What ARE you teaching your child??
