    How old is too old for someone to date your 16 Year old Son or Daughter?



    Hahaha crazy scene but I'll be honest, I'd feel the same way

    How old is too old to date your 16 Year old Son or Daughter?

    Personally if who they are dating isn't also in school and older than 17 it's not happening.

    You shouldn't be dating your teenage daughter at any age Doc... Seek help.

    I personally wouldn’t date my 16 year old daughter but If you feel like you are too old to date her you should follow your gut instinct on this one.

    Any age is too old to date your son or daughter. You should not date your son or daughter, period.

    Aside from the obvious implications in the title, which has been pointed out to death already, I don't think you should interfere with your child's relationship as long as there aren't obvious red flags (like a 16 year old girl dating a 29 year old man for example).

    I don't post that often, and when I do it's often in bursts. I always lurk though.

    evenif you forbid teenager fuck with who they want to especial since the internet exist and social media its even easier so tbh you cant jail her/him until he moves out ...i think trust and alot communication is what helps ....its better as no i dont allow you this and this but everyone raises his kids diffrent also everyone is diffrent this there are no ultimate answers it depends on on the parents and the teenagers equaly

    So what's the age that it's an obvious red flag? Is it just your example or is someone 28 too old?

    it's a vague question. What country do we live in? If it's the US what state?

    I don't have a definitive line I can draw in the sand, but if there's a clear and obvious difference in maturity between the parties it becomes a red flag.

    16 is the age of consent in Canada. The only thing that I would object is if the teen is dating someone in a position of power over him/her.

    So, your superior at work, *your* teacher, family, etc.

    Of course, you've got to be cautious about emotional abuse too, as it's easier for older individuals to coerce someone into a relationship through emotional manipulation.

    But all in all, it's about respect and equality first. So long that this is there and genuine, then it's up to the individuals.

    Anyone who bans their kids from dating at all is id..., sorry, not a very smart person.
    1. Because they will do it anyway.
    2. Because you will stunt their social growth as human being leading to a myriad of potential problems.
    3. They are likely to dislike you or even hate you later. Congratulations.

    Id say 18 is definitely a cutoff point. At that age a person experiences quite a few dramatic changes in their life. It's unfair to drag the younger partner in the relationship through all that.
