Now let's talk about the Teen Brain: Learner's Permit

I love that you mention teen driving in an article on teen dating! The desire for both happens well before they are mature or responsible enough, let alone "have permission."

The appropriate age for dating is complicated. Just because a teen turns 16 and is legally allowed to drive, does not mean they are mature enough to handle a two-ton vehicle going 10 miles per hour on the freeway.

The teen brain is not fully developed. Their synapses are not firing on all cylinders. They are not defective – they are just missing parts.

The state mandates that parents are part of the learning curve in driving because WE have a fully developed pre-frontal cortex and can warn our child when they head the wrong way down a one-way street.

With teen pregnancies, teens dating under the influence of drugs and alcohol and teen dating violence and abuse, our teens are headed for a teen dating crisis and need healthy boundary lines to stay on the right road.

Very few teens fail Driver’s Ed – millions fail at dating.

When I coach parents, what I see most often is what I call, "airbag parenting" – deployment after the fact and not always effective.

If we stand on the porch and wave as they pull away from the curb for the first time without any guidance or instruction, we can expect a call when there is an accident.

Safe teen dating does not happen by accident!

About Teen Dating Mechanic

Welcome to Dater's Ed! My name is Lisa Jander and I want to thank you for your commitment to being the best parents you can be for the next generation! Let's get right to the heart of the matter First, I want you to know that I do not promote teen dating...our culture does and we are in the midst of a Teen Dating Crisis. Our cultural norm consists of: Teen pregnancies Teen dating violence and abuse Teens dating under the influence of drugs and alcohol Sexting, sexual harassment And Hundreds of other teen dating challenges So, where is the structure when it comes to teen dating? We have; No rules No curriculum No guidance No supervision No manual Think about it -- Very few teens fail Driver's Ed -- millions fail at dating Well, I wasn't going to let that happen to my kids! I searched the internet, bookstores, anywhere I could think of to get help on the topic of teen dating and what I found was all the same generic ramblings I had heard as a teen. So, out of necessity, I developed Dater's Ed. I took all the recommendations from the Driver's Ed Manual to teach my own kids about dating. Dater's Ed is to dating what Driver's Ed is to driving. Dater's Ed provides the structure, curriculum and even a test similar to the one our teens take to get their driver's license. Dater's Ed will help you teach your teens how to "date defensively, navigate safely and steer clear of unhealthy relationships." There is a solution for parents. I coach parents 1 on 1 but the cost and time limitations have prevented other families from having access to the same information and getting the ongoing support they need. I knew there had to be a better way to help more parents. So, it only made sense to create an alternative to eliminate all obstacles and give all parents access to this vital information from the comfort of their own homes at a very low cost. The course is structured as an online webinar combined with the audio by phone. I call it the Crash Course. I am SO confident you will love this course, that I am offering a 1 month FREE, no obligation trial for everyone who signs up. You can choose from a 3, 6 or 12 month membership And they start at only $29.97, $19.97 or $9.97/month respectively! This is a 1 hour course once a week packed with 30 minutes of fuel to get you through the week followed by 30 minutes live Q&A from other parents just like you.
