I speak extensively on the topic of teenage dating.

We have to exercise compassion and put ourselves in the shoes of the average teenager today.
Our teens are surrounded by a 24/7 full-frontal assault of sexual imagery and adult content. They view this via movies, music, TV and the Internet. Even the commercials are riddled with sexual content.
Now, add an already hormonally charged season of life (we call adolescence) to the equation and send them off into the night all by themselves with no chaperone.
