Age children start dating
What is the age at which children are obliged to fast?
How can we encourage them to fast and pray in the mosque, especially Taraweeh prayer? Firstly: Fasting is not obligatory for young children, until they reach the age of adolescence, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The pens have been lifted from three: from one who has lost his mind until he comes back to his senses, from one who is sleeping until he wakes up, and from a child until he reaches the age of adolescence.” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 4399; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood.
At what age should children be allowed to start dating and What age should a child be allowed to have a mobile phone/cell phone and What is an appropriate curfew for a 14 year old?
I think children should be allowed to start dating around 15 or 16.
Ibn Qudaamah said: This means that he should be made to fast and told to do so.
And he should be smacked if he does not do it, so as to train him and make him get used to it, just as he should be made to pray and told to do it.
Because, if you go out rather often when you're about 13 or 14 it's nice, for the child and the parent to be able to keep in touch.
If your pre-teen is in pursuit of a junior-high romance, make sure you’ve talked with them about these five risks: #1 Drug Use – Building on a large body of research, a recent study from the University of Georgia found children who date in middle school use alcohol and marijuana twice as much as their peers who hold off on dating until high school.
The more time teens spend with a love interest, the more likely they are to use drugs.
There is also a practical element: If the romantic interest – or, interestingly enough, their friends – drink or use drugs, your child will likely follow suit to demonstrate their ability to fit into the partner’s life.
This type of indirect peer pressure can be positive if the partner and their friends steer clear of drugs and alcohol, or it can be an early introduction to a potentially life-altering problem.
