Dater’s Ed is a proactive education to avoid the need for a reactive solution.
Dater's Ed is modeled after the Driver’s Ed manual to teach your teen how to date safely and responsibly ONLY at the appropriate age of maturity that YOU determine…and not a moment sooner!
If you have a tween or a teen, you will face the reality of the teen dating crisis in our culture. How will you equip your teen to steer clear of…
– Teen dating violence and abuse?
– Teen sex and pregnancy?
– Teen drug and alcohol abuse?
– Teen depression, anxiety, stress and suicide?
– Digital abuse, sexting and textual harassment?
Teens are in contact with thousands of other single teens throughout their school years. It is our job as parents to guide them, steer them and keep them from the junkyard of broken hearts. If you do not have a structured plan of action to cement the values, habits, and behaviors in place before they begin dating, don't wait another minute!
– What is the definition of dating?
– When is it safe to begin dating?
– What role do parents play?
Dater’s Ed uses very common Driver’s Ed analogies that can be found everywhere. These comparisons will provide you with specific parallels that you can shift into instantly for “on-the-spot wisdom.” This course will raise hundreds of questions, some left unanswered, to inspire you and your teen to create your own response. It will give kids a chance to take the wheel and develop healthy social skills in a safe environment. Just like Driver's Ed, we encourage parental participation and supervised learning inside a structured curriculum.
Who is teaching your student about the hazards of teen dating?
Who is having more influence on teen dating in your home, you or the rest of the world?
Think of it this way, regardless of faith, every student is required to take a universal Driver's Ed course. Safety and responsibility do not discriminate based on beliefs. That said, we fully understand that faith plays a primary role for many families when it comes to relationships so the Christian track includes the verses that apply to each Lesson.
With either track, this comprehensive curriculum gives you all the tools you need to teach your teens to date safely and responsibly. With over 20 hours of online instruction, you and your teen can now experience this nationally recognized course directly on your laptop or phone in less than an hour a week. The great news is that there is no time limit so you can go at your own pace! Give it a try for FREE!
We don't promote teen dating; our culture does! This course is designed to give you a fun, family framework in which to teach these important relational principles, based on something you and your teen are already familiar with – cars and driving. You know how to drive and you know how to teach driving. Apply these concepts to dating and you have the Dater's Ed course!
