There is no way around it; your teenager is going to want to date.

When he or she does, you’ll have to step up to the plate with some parenting skills.

Having an eyes-on policy might be necessary and healthy in some circumstances.

But make sure you offer your teen at least a little bit of privacy.

At least that’s what teens said in a recent story about online romance in the student newspaper at my daughters’ suburban Maryland high school.

According to that story, “students initiate relationships online to meet new people, avoid stressful in-person meetings and hide their dating lives from their parents.” That’s certainly the case for some kids, according to my 17-year-old.

While it's not healthy to get wrapped up in your teen's dating life, there will be times when you may have to intervene.

If you overhear your teen saying mean comments or using manipulative tactics, speak up.

The teen dating scene can be awkward and uncomfortable, for teens as well as their parents.

Technology has changed the way teens date, and many parents aren't sure how to talk about dating these days.

She says that teens she knows often meet online by contacting each other through Facebook and by commenting on each other’s Twitter feeds and Instagram photos. If that person “likes” you back, it’s time for a digital chat.

Or they play around on Tinder, that popular matchmaking app that allows users to find potential matches based on their proximity to each other, a couple photos and their common interests. “If you want to talk to someone, but you’re too embarrassed to do it in real life, it’s easy to do it over the Internet instead of face to face,” she says.

Make sure your teen knows that just because he's ready to go on a date, doesn't necessarily mean he's ready for a relationship.
