Oh, is that ever a chilling headline for the parent of teenagers! Well, fear not, for author Lisa Jander has written a book called “Dater’s Ed: The Instruction Manual for Parents”. It’s based on the idea of “Driver’s Ed” from high school. Yes, teens will groan and roll their eyes as parents the world over read out loud from this manual and give tests.

For the teens and young singles, parents owe you an explanation. Because you’re wondering “What gives with mom and dad? Why are they so uptight? Did they expect me to be a nun?” Well, it’s natural to feel defensive about your kids. It’s less about micro-managing who you love and why – than it is about putting you on safety watch so your folks don’t have to lie awake at night with pictures of psychos and stalkers go through their heads.

That being said, any parent should acknowledge that they’re going to be wrong about who their children date at least 25% of the time. How could you possibly not get it wrong? You’re a parent!
