Conquering The Land Of Parenting. Properly disciplining a child is training, not punishing a child. Deciding when to allow a child to date should be determined by the child’s maturity. Having “the talk” should be done as soon as the child is able to understand. If the parent waits too long the child’s friends will rob you of “the talk” with your child.
