Hi-Noon: Dating In The 7th Grade?

On her Facebook wall, Cindy tells of something you don't want to hear from your seventh-grader: “Mom! Everybody's dating. Everybody!” I remember as a high school freshman taking a girl to a prom. But I don't think I started dating until I was 16. My son didn't date until he was a senior in high school. My daughter dated one guy at 16 and then not again until she got into college. She said during high school: “I can't think of a high school boy that's worth dating.” How about you?

Question: When did you start dating? When did you allow your kids to date?
