There are many ways parents can lead by example. Oddly the issue of dating is one of those. For those parents that are married we can set an example in our own relationships. Our relationship with our spouse should be something that our children want to copy. Whether we realize it or not there are always eyes watching how we treat each other. Ask yourself, “Is our marriage something that would make our children want to be married?”
For those who are single parents, you have an amazing opportunity to lead by example in a difficult area. If you do date, are you doing it the way you want your children to date? In a way that would honor God? It is an awesome opportunity to open the doors of communication as you journey through this stage with your kids. This is one of the few areas you can help to hold each other accountable.
