my son had one at 13


In my experience, you don't really get a say in this. Around middle school kids have boyfriends and girlfriends and you may never even know about them. The more important factor to consider is when that special friend from school can visit your home or your child can go out places with them. I'm hesitant to put an exact age on this because to me it is more about maturity. Around 15, in my experience, is a good time to allow them to go out and do things with their boyfriend or girlfriend. Before that any relationship should probably be kept to keeping in touch at school and perhaps through social media at home like Facebook.
