KId shod be able to because they should be able to show how to be a man it takes practice to become good at something why start at a young age?
Cenc

Pro

My opponent has stated their position incorrectly. I'm Con, they are Pro.

Given that Pro has not provided a definition of 'pre teen', here is one:

1.] relating to or produced for children especially in the 9 to 12 year-old age group

On the basis that a 'pre-teen' is indeed defined as a child between the ages of 9-12, we can conclude that a pre-teen is either pre-pubescent, or in the very early stages of puberty.

Because pre-teens are children, they should not be allowed to have any relationship that is romantic in nature. For example, a girlfriend is defined as:

2.] a person's regular female companion with whom they have a romantic or sexual relationship

Thus, a child between the ages of 9-12 should not have a girlfriend -- because if they have a girlfriend, the likelihood of them having romantic or sexual relations at early age is considerably increased.

Pro should answer:

- Can a pre-teen give informed consent?

- Why is it a benefit for pre-teens to date?
