Today's teens spend a lot of time texting and posting to potential love interests on social media.
For some, that can make dating easier because they may get to know one another better online first.
Your parenting values, your teen's maturity level, and the specific situation will help you decide how much chaperoning your teen needs.
Don't listen in on every phone call and don't read every social media message.
Of course, those rules don't necessarily apply if you have valid safety concerns.
So you'll need to provide guidance that can help her be successful in her future relationships.
Whether she experiences some serious heartbreak, or she's a heart breaker, adolescence is when teens learn about romance.
