Should I let my 16 year old son date?

Theres no right answer. Its important to consider your child as an individual. For many kids, 16 seems to be an appropriate age, but it may be entirely suitable for a mature 15-year-old to go on a date, or to make your immature 16-year-old wait a year or two. You can also consider what other parents are doing.

Can 16 years old live alone?

People under 16 cant make an independent decision to leave home. Legally, they are still the responsibility of an adult. Over 16s can leave home without the consent of parents or carers. A parent can try to force the young person to return home but a court would be unlikely to make them return against their will.

Is it OK for a 13 year old to date a 16 year old?

The question as phrased, the answer is no. It is not legal. If the 16 year old engages in any sexual conduct with the 13 year old, they could face statutory rape charges and the parental consent assuming there was any would have no bearing
