You go from changing their diapers, to teaching them how to tie their shoes, to eventually helping them understand dating and love. As hormones fly, you can expect to deal with your fair share of conflict. So when it comes to dating, how can you prepare yourself to deal with potential questions and issues? And what age is appropriate? The American Academy of Pediatrics notes that on average, girls begin dating as early as 12 and a half years old, and boys a year older. At this age, it probably means your son or daughter is sitting next to a special someone at lunch or hanging out at recess. Groups play a big role in relaying information about who likes whom. For eighth-graders, dating likely means lots of time spent talking on the phone and hanging out in groups.

At 38, she married journalist Dominic Lawson, son of the former chancellor Nigel and brother of Nigella, and together they hosted glittering dinner parties at their London home. Their first daughter Savannah, now aged 14, was born perfect and they counted their blessings. A second daughter Natalia was stillborn at six months, and Domenica was born with Down’s syndrome.
While her husband, a non-believer, instantly accepted and adored Domenica, Rosa – who comes from one of Britain’s most prominent Roman Catholic families – was floored. That way lies madness.

My first boyfriend in junior high and high school was black. That man and I remain friends even to this day. In college, I dated a guy who had grown up on a dairy farm in Iowa, he joined the military, his mother lived in a trailer, and he was Lutheran.
