Why do moms not want their daughter to date?
It is very common and even predictable for parents especially moms to be protective of their daughters which is why some would not readily allow permission for dates. The proverbial art of "holding on" and "letting go" or the "push" and "pull" balance in the relationship between parents and their children is something that is very trivial as well as challenging to achieve and master even with time. This is particularly difficult for moms who typically consider their kids as "babies" even when they have already grown up and matured.
Is she ready or responsible enough to go out unsupervised? Would she be safe with this guy? Do I know this guy enough to trust him with my daughter? These are some of the nagging questions that haunt moms when torn between allowing her daughter to go out on a date or not. It is also practically reasonable and even instinctive for moms to be protective of their daughters when going out on dates because of the alarming rise of dating abuse incidences, drug use, violence, and even teen pregnancies that could spring from a regular date. Also, the appropriate age for dating could vary depending on family, social, religious, and even cultural preferences
Guys who intend to date someone should go out of his way to visit her at home regularly where the parents will have an opportunity to get to know him better before personally asking the daughter out on a date. For parents, it would be wise to get to know the guy well enough (family, school, or social background) to trust him with your daughter when he asks her out for a date. It would also be very impressive if the guy asks the parents personally of their consent when dating their daughter. This means that he has no ill intentions with the daughter and that he is eager to work on gaining their confidence. Opening the communication ties with your daughter will help you protect her from harm yet also allow her ample space to socialize and grow. Inevitably, trust is earned. It takes real conscientious effort, patience, and honesty to gain a mom's trust but it's all worth it.
