The young lady told the boy that she is not allowed to car date. (She’s 16 or 17 I believe) She was not apologetic about it either. She stated it as a fact that she embraces!
She is allowed to meet a boy at a destination to go to a movie or eat or whatever or maybe even have a boy over to her home to do family activities, but she is not allowed to go in a car with a boy alone. She is happy to “court” him but dating in the traditional sense is not something their family promotes.
She also has a few sisters who are married so I do believe that her parents may know a thing or two about what they are doing.
I have to tell you, from a “boy mom” point of view, I have never been happier to know that there are parents who promote this with their daughters. The boy in question was actually happy about it too. Isn’t that odd?! (I know this boy personally, you see, though I do not wish to name him and embarrass him)
Anyway, If I had a daughter THIS would be our family's practice also. However, I am at a loss for how courting works with sons?
They are the “men” so they need to be able to drive the lady home if she is dating rather than "courting." How does this works with young men? How do they ask a girl out, but then say, "I won't pick you up or drop you off?"
Does anyone have first hand experience with this for their sons? I would love to hear your version of courting. I need information quickly!
I just had to share that. I’m so pleased.
