When it comes to dating, parental approval varies from family to family. Some families have rules about how old one must be to date, while others have no rules at all. Parental approval is necessary for the safety of the child and because parents are more mature and experienced.
It is necessary that parents approve of the people their children date for the safety of their kids. In some instances, parents are better aware of when a child is jeopardizing their safety and/or future by dating a specific person than the child may be. Once teenagers hit adolescence, they often want to become more independent and, therefore are distancing themselves from their parents and less often listening to what their parents have to say. This makes them want to do and believe things contradicting their parents beliefs. Hence, if teenagers know their parents morals are against drinking, they may date someone who often does in order to be rebellious. In short, parental approval often is important in the teenage years to keep children safe and away from bad morals or abusive relationships.
Parents should also approve of the people their children date because they are more mature and experienced. They are older, and therefore wiser, having experienced more of the “real world” than most high schoolers have. Having been through college and worked a real job already, parents know what is best for their child’s future. Most everything else parents do is in order to prepare their children for success in the future, and whether us children want to believe it or not, it is in their best interest that we do well. Therefore, parents’ opinions on who their child dates should be in the front of a the child’s mind when deciding because they know best what is most beneficial for their children’s futures.
Parents should approve of the people their children date in order to keep their children safe and because we are less wise and mature than they are. It is in their best interest to keep their family safe and provide the next generation with a better life than they had. It’s just part of being a parent that allows them to have some say in who their children date.
