From friendships to dating, these are the years that Christian teens start building ties outside of the family.
While these relationships are an exciting time for Christian teens, they also come with their own issues and hazards.
You must decide before you go on the date what your limits will be.
Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.
Some of the messages we've presented have taken the position that Christians can apply their faith in such a way that they can still work within the system they've inherited.
Other messages have stressed that Christians need to be much more counter-cultural.
This is also why Christian teens need to work at keeping their friendships strong.
Think of the traits that are important in any relationship like honesty and trust, and they apply to your friends.
