I think kids should date depending on how old they are
EmilyMemmi

Con

Pro's arguments are weak and with no facts. Young people should not date until they are at least in their teen years (16), because young people need to care about themselves, and shouldn't change themselves, their interests, or their performance in school because their boyfriend or girlfriend doesn't like they way they already are! (1) And anyways, 16 may be to young! Dating is modern day courting, so if you're to young to marry, you're most likely to young to date! (2) Out of space, links next!

well they should date so they know what love is and know if it really is worth it
EmilyMemmi

Con

Kids have plenty of time to learn "what love is" without risking any broken hearts, hurt feelings, or ruined friendships beforfe they're old enough! Dating and experiencing love is not worth all the resulting setbacks, such as bad performance in school or the increased posibility to engage in alcohol or drugs! (1)

I believe children should have the ability to date other children of their near age. I believe it is healthy for a child to understand what love really is, and not take it for granted. Especially if the parent is guiding the child in what and what not to do. That way when the child is of age to SERIOUSLY date, with the high possibility of marriage, they will understand what to do, and how to gain favor from both the lover and the parents.

Define "kid"? What age range does this encompass?

Define "date"? Are we talking '50s courtship, or playdates, or what?

Please specify your argument.
