Moms Talk is a feature on Belmont Patch that is part of a new initiative on our Patch sites to reach out to moms and families.
Belmont Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in town.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, youth sports and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Moms Talk will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic. Do you know of local moms raising their children in the Tiger Mother's way and is it the best way? Where can we get information on local flu shot clinics for children? How can we help our children's schools weather their budget cutbacks?
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a question:
At what age do you believe teens should be allowed to date? What are some of the early restrictions you place on your teens when they are starting to date (curfews, etc.)?
Just as a starter, do teens even date? My son, "The Boy," laughed everytime I asked if he was dating (of course, after taking my money) suggesting I must have stepped out of the outdated history text he brought home. "Dating? No one dates!"
Let us know what you think about this question in the comments below!
