How to handle teenage girls and dating

There is no way around it; your teenager is going to want to date.When he or she does, you’ll have to step up to the plate with some parenting skills.

At school, I counted the minutes until that bell rang so I could see her between classes.

Her mom even gave me a nick name—Lionel Joseph (from Trading Places).

A kid with 500 'friends' is more common than you think." But big numbers like that should be a red flag to parents.

But like the overwhelming majority of high school dating relationships, ours ended in an explosion of drama and heartbreak.

She’s absolutely mortified, of course, by my presence.
