Parental influence on dating

logger That Mom recently began a series on courtship.

I don’t know where she will take the subject as she goes on through the series, but I did want to touch on the premise she begins with—that parents need to be involved.

What can a parent do to make sure their dating teens are happy and safe?

As children, we immediately form a close bond with the parent of the opposite sex.

A father is the first male a young girl creates a relationship with, so he inevitably becomes her ideal male (mate) throughout life.

Without even realizing it, for a long time, I was drawn to men just like them.

In short, they were unreliable, inconsistent, immature addicts.
