While the idea of your teen dating in general may be uncomfortable, one way to ease some stress is to set some boundaries.
Many parents take the issue of teenage dating on a case-by-case basis because every kid is different.
House dates are a next step for teens (or parents!) who may not be quite ready for one-on-one dating yet. Sean Covey’s book, The Six Most Important Decisions You Will Ever Make: A Guide for Teens, talks about teens being ready to date and knowing the difference between “intelligent” and “brainless” dating.

4.  Teen dating is about meeting many different kinds of people to find out what they eventually might like in a life partner, so don’t flip out if your teen brings a guy home who you don’t love.
Intelligent dating is not making decisions based on hormones, popularity, money and what the crowd is doing. Talk to your child about dating and how it’s not always like the media portrays it, how some of the very best dates are free and to be realistic about how a date might play out. Don’t be afraid to tell about your own best and worst dates and mistakes you’ve made while dating.

For me, 13 or 14 would have been too young for dating because boys still freaked me out then, and I had no siblings to learn from. I do see being a responsible driver as somewhat related to being able to handle dating,” said Wendy Budetti, mom of five.
