Dating Boundaries 101
When it comes to your teen daughter, her well-being is your #1 concern.
As it should be. Especially when it comes to dating. Unlike with driving, you have to be concerned about your daughter’s emotional well-being just as much (if not more) as her physical safety.
And let’s face it, growing up in the Age of Smartphones, Selfies and Social Media is already tough for girls.
Add in dating, and your daughter faces pressure on every side:
...pressure from today’s culture that tells her to value #relationshipgoals over #lifegoals.
...pressure from peers to be in a relationship at all costs just to fit in.
...pressure from guys to put their sex interests above her BEST interests.
...pressure she puts on herself to measure her worth by her relationship status.
This is so unhealthy! But unfortunately, very common.
My boyfriend pressured me for sex and I kept refusing. He wouldn’t stop insisting, so one day I finally caved in and did it. It was the worst mistake of my life because he still broke up with me shortly after we had sex.”

How to Pressure-Proof Your Daughter While Dating
Hi, my name is Jackie Brewton and I’ve been a teen healthy relationship expert and youth speaker for the past 17+ years.
During that time, I’ve received hundreds of letters of REGRET like the one above from teen girls who’ve suffered emotionally (and sometimes physically), from the pressures of dating.
Thankfully that doesn’t have to be your daughter’s story!
Because for every letter of regret I receive from girls who wished they would’ve heard me speak sooner, I receive twice as many letters of RELIEF from girls who did.
And just in time to do dating RIGHT. (Even if it meant not being in a relationship at all.)
“I always saw sex as the only option and that if I were to date someone they would leave because I would not put out. During your presentation I came to realize that when I do find someone, they need to rise to my standards instead of me rising to theirs. I learned that there is so much more to relationships than sex and that I need to date someone who realizes that and respects me for my realization.”
“This class has taught me to respect myself so much more than I have before. I have learned that I need to make boundaries and that sex isn’t all there is to a relationship. I used to make poor decisions because I got tired of fighting with guys even though I didn’t want to do that. The consequences have affected my future but I’m not going to let guys take advantage of me anymore. Thank you for this class. It has impacted me for the better.”

- educated about the who, what, when, where, why and how of dating,
- equipped with a game plan to set and maintain healthy boundaries that honor who she is now and hopes to become in the future, and
- empowered to demand respect while dating and walk away from the relationship if it’s not given.
NOW’s the time for your daughter to master the habit of establishing and maintaining boundaries.
Doing so can mean the difference between her getting caught up in a series of unhealthy relationships resulting in long-lasting pain that can cause her to question her own value.
Successfully navigating the roller coaster ride that is teen dating with her physical AND emotional well-being intact.
But before you do, check out what other Moms are saying about my content for teen girls:
“I let my hair stylist borrow your DVD for her 14-year-old daughter. They watched it last night, and her daughter LOVED it. She said they talked all night and her daughter wants a copy to show her friends! She wishes you could come to N.Y.!”
"Jackie! Jackie! Jackie! Jackie! I want to thank you from the absolute bottom of my heart for writing this book. For sharing real life situations/case scenarios. After reading your book, my daughter has opened up to me about sex and relationships…she even admitted to recently almost engaging in sexual activity.
You are a blessing from above. God bless you tremendously. Much love!"
I believe that mothers are their daughters’ best teacher. PERIOD.
So, Dating Boundaries 101 should NEVER replace honest and open dialogue between you and your daughter about love, sex, and relationships.
