My family did this with me as well, but I'll tell you something. At 15-16, I was 'dating' this guy, (I say 'dating', but looking back we had nothing in commen but sex : ), and his father or my uncle would drop us off at the movie, and would come pick us up when it was over. However, we got the 'smart' idea to leave the theatre pretty early into the movie, and well, go behind the theatre and have sex behind some trees...lol
Yes, yes, an embarrassing piece of infromation there, but another pieve of evidence that 'where there's a will, there's a way'....
I don't know what I'll do with my kids. I intend to play it by ear. I really do think it's kinda silly to say 'I'll do this at this age, and that at that age', it's kinda like a cookie-cutter 'rule' for children who aren't shaped the same way... If that makes any sense..
I really just intend to allow my children to do what feels comfortable, when it feels comfortable. Depending on their personalities, their maturity, as well at the people they wish to date...
