The young man’s mother did a very good job teaching manners and etiquette to her son.He ate with us at Easter and even brought flowers and a dessert. That said, this is still my daughter we’re talking about and I’m not naïve. No father likes to see his daughter cuddled with a boy.Therefore the King will have to prepare himself, to protect the heart of his daughter from the pricks and idiots who would pursue it in years to come.
Based on this discussion, I decided that it was my obligation, as a loving father, to compile a guide for dating my daughter. Rule 9 – I will judge/ approve any outfit you may wish to wear on any of your prospective dates.
It is more a set of rules (12 to be exact) to which all the prospective boys considering courting my daughter in future, should adhere to. My approval will be based on one simple criteria: How difficult would it be to take off.
There once was a little princess, and even at a tender age her beauty was evident. Some say she would grow up to be the most beautiful in all the land.
Her blue eyes sparkled mischievously and a few freckles dotted her nose and cheeks. It is predicted that young men (and some old farts), would come from far and wide to try to win her heart.
I was impressed with the evident way Fred loves his wife, Kim, and his children.
His passion for the word of God and for Christ our Savior is evident. He’s written a wonderful book on Warfield’s theology. And that’s come through not only in our conversation but also in our emails recently.
They turn on the music and sing, dance, and make a bunch of the healthy-type of food that is so popular today. Interestingly, this young man is aggressive in his desire for me to know him and vice versa.
This isn’t at all the new modern type of teenage dating where they hang out in groups and go through levels of “talking.” What’s taking place is a good old fashioned courting process.
He might be a well-adjusted young man full of the right things, but I was not at his age, and I know all the angles. Control the public displays of affection and in private too.
I’m not proud of my years as a teenage boy, but as a parent I have a wealth of experience to draw upon. I know you’re going to kiss, but I sure don’t want to see it. Show my daughter the respect she deserves, and she’s been taught to treat you the same way. And no, you can’t go out of town together to see a concert. We spent all those years teaching and instilling values.
For teenagers, perspective isn’t the easy thing to begin with. This is a dangerous age where everything we do is put under a microscope.
