Too young for dating
They can't drive, so shouldn't be in cars with kids old enough to drive.It's perfectly all right for you to explain to your daughter why she can't date and that it's basically a safety issue -- emotional and physical safety.Such early relationships make it more difficult to avoid damage to the delicate and still-forming self-image, not to mention the problem of resisting temptation.
To add the pressure of a relationship at this stage seems almost too much to ask, especially when the other person is experiencing the same upheaval.
Young teens—even older teens—are besieged by hormonal and societal pressures that seem at times almost unbearable.
Each day brings new feelings—doubts, fears, and confusion coupled with joys and exhilaration—which can be very confusing.
You can also set up the conditions and times when you will consider her ready.
Emphasize that you trust her to do the right thing and that sneaking around to date breaks that trust.
It should be at your house in the daytime and something that she gets to help plan.
