Just like Driver’s Ed, the Dater’s Ed course for teens is laid out in two sections: Segment One and Segment Two.
Would you ever let your teen practice driving with no instruction? So, why let your teen practice dating without instruction?
You might not think your teen is dating – but he or she certainly is practicing! Teens learning on their own what works and doesn’t work when it comes to relationships. Would you like to have some powerful input?
Segment One, (Lessons 0-8), is the “Teen Dating Permit,” which requires parental permission, a structured curriculum and supervised practice hours without dating.
Each lesson begins with a video on teen brain development where your student will learn to shift his or her thinking about dating from a “heart” issue to a “head” issue. Next, there will be an online chapter complete with pictures, quotes and most importantly, thought provoking questions for your child to answer or a situation to solve.
This course has a truck-load of opportunities for interaction and growth and gives you the keys to drive the process. There is also an optional faith-based expansion of the text created to give biblical reference with a scripture verse as a stand-alone feature to be used at your discretion. At the end of each lesson, there is a short a quiz for your child to show off what he or she has learned along the way.
If you haven’t taken the Teen Dating Readiness Gauge, now would be a great time! It only takes a minute!
The Dater’s Ed course – Segment One is equivalent to the initial classroom hours of Driver’s Ed and will:
- * Promote a family model for healthy relationships
- * Tune-up social and relational skills long before dating begins
- * Educate teens about the hazards of dating
- * Shift students from emotional desire to logical discipline
This segment defines who’s who: The Driver, the Instructor, the Salesman, etc. The focus is on establishing healthy relational wisdom fueled by knowledge not feelings before dating begins. You will define what a “date” really is. When a date really is. This segment is equivalent to the initial classroom hours of Driver’s Ed. It will explore what teens and pre-teens will face on the Dating Highway before they ever leave their seats. This lesson plan is recommended for Middle School students as young as 11, 12 or 13 at the parent’s discretion. Teens should not move to High School without taking this course! The real value is that everything learned can be applied to any social situation, not just dating: friends, family, teacher, employer etc.
***(This course is a pre-requisite to Segment Two).

Dater’s Ed promotes and encourages healthy adult involvement, preferably the parents or guardian, in the form of a Relationship Coach. As their Coach, you will:
- Have access to all course material and your student’s progress.
- Complete the ORANGE sections for parents
- Review and discuss the your student’s answers in the GREEN quizes
- Approve your student’s completion to move to the next Lesson
- Log healthy hours with your teen
We realize, not all teens and parents see eye-to-eye. If your teen is at an age (or stage) where you feel that it would be best for your teen to have an alternate designated Online Relationship Mentor, then you can choose one of the two options:
1. Choose another healthy adult (over the age of 30 is recommended) to help your teen navigate the course or
2. Request a trained Dater’s Ed Online Relationship Mentor for a small, addition fee of only $40.00.
The purpose of the Relationship Coach is to review the answers throughout the text and respond to the student with healthy accountability. But don’t worry…either way, as a parent, you will still:
* Have full access to the curriculum and the answers given by your student
* Go through the course with your student
* Have control over the pace at which your student completes the course
* Determine if your teen can advance and graduate
