11 year olds dating site
Again, all this would come better from Dad to son..of that becoming man thing.Please check out the info above..husband found it helpful.I would let him go out with girls but only if others who are sensible are there.Let him know that anywhere under the clothing is out of bounds, but he can be friends.But its not fair to either a boy or girl to create a situation where they feel they need to date to grow up.Courting used to be what was done and involved the parents helping the child chose a mate when they were ready... I believe that we can help our children to spend this time developing character traits that will help them when it is time for this.There is absolutely no need for alone time or unsupervised communication at this age!!!
Both of my boys were "going out" with girls at different times, but it didn't involve anything other than phone calls (monitored by us) and talking at school until they were in high school.
One other thing I remember from this age is that while they boys feel all grown up and manly, they still need their mommy. Explain to him that dating is for picking the person that he is going to ultimately marry and that at 11 he is no where near ready for that and that he needs to chill out and be friends with girls and boys and learn to make those kinds of relationships first.
Get him involved in sports and church and other activities that are healthier and where he can interact with members of both sexes without the weird pressure of going out. That won't be the last time you hear that one you have to learn to nip that one in the bud.

I know you are just asking a question about dating, but at the age of 11 its a good time for parents, especially dad to encourage their boys to spend the time preparing for one of the most exciting times of life..in my opinion that's not by dating, even though the interest may be there...letting your son know that this is a really special part of life and that girls his age may be trying to get his attention, (or he may start to be distracted by them) If he takes this time of life to begin developing his own character, one day the best will come.
I don't wanna be overprotective, but I also in NO means want to seem as though I am encouraging sexual activity.....
