Why is 16 a good age to start dating
I did not allow my dating life to get so deep that the potential eventual break up would be horrendous.
We never got passed first base, as they say, and I know this helped when we eventually stopped dating. It's good when you are doing things in groups because it can take some of the pressure of having to keep the entertainment value up by yourself.So, at first glance, it seems better to wait until teens are older to begin driving.However, when you look a little deeper, you realize that part of the reason younger teens are more likely to crash is because they have the least experience. This gives their parents a big opportunity to influence their driving by coaching, monitoring and supporting them.God created us to need interpersonal relationships.In Genesis it says, Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." As Adam and Eve demonstrate, no matter how many friends we have, in order to fulfill our deep need for love and affection, we need close relationships with others, especially the opposite sex.As parents, we're more concerned about keeping them safe.
We know the human brain doesn't fully mature until 25 and studies show 16 and 17 year-olds are much more likely to crash than 18 year-olds.
In other words, dating establishes social confidence, helps people learn social skills like manners, consideration for others, cooperation, and conversation.
Personal identity is developed through relationships with other people. When a dating experience is successful it helps to build our personality.
With others around, there is usually plenty of great ideas for having fun!
Lastly, I was involved in other things besides dating.
One of the best counters to loneliness is the establishment of meaningful relationships with others.
