Rules for dating my daughter...revisited...

After having a conversation at a party with a friend last night it looks like I need to repost my rules on dating...

She says, "Regarding dating in junior high and high school, I don't see the purpose in it but I know most kids do it. I know I did it and it caused lots of hurt and grief for me when I was still so young and impressionable."
